Second Space: "Blank"

Performance Dates: February 14-17, 21-23


THE PLAY YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS SEALED INSIDE AN ENVELOPE....
No rehearsals, no director, 7 performances - a different performer each night, each laying eyes on the script at that moment for the very first time....

In a joint effort between audience and performer, gaps in the script are filled in to reveal a story, made up on the spot, that celebrates the human imagination. As inventive as it is engaging, BLANK reverses the typical theater experience: A script riddled with blanks leaves the audience in charge of how the story will unfold. The concept might be simple but the result is nothing short of empowering and extraordinary as a random audience member sees his or her future determined by the imagination of others.

Location: Performances will be on the 2nd floor of Spectrum Theater in room 211. This is where we normally rehearse our plays and musicals. Why perform in this space? Due to the show's intimate relationship between actor and audience - experiencing the script for the very first time together - we want to bring you into our inner sanctuary: the rehearsal room.
