an immersive, audio based, choose-your-own-adventure performance, within a gigantic furniture store.
ASSEMBLE explores themes of intimacy and loneliness. Participants download an app to their phones and are tasked to assemble their own “story”.
The store is none the wiser.
Guiding them is a narrator/ instruction manual, prompting participants at specific locations within the store, offering a suite of choices and tasks. The resulting experience - part installation, part performance - is entirely unique to each participant.
In March 2019, we developed the first iteration of ASSEMBLE and participated with a test audience. In November 2019 we will be holding a longer creative development, with a public premiere of the project in January 2020.
