I am so excited to announce the launch of TBD: The Live Devising Project! Formerly developed as EIDETIC MEMORY, TBD is a relational and participatory theatre experience that seeks to recognize and appreciate the emancipated spectator, break down the illusion of theatricality, and invite the audience into the devising process. TBD uses the audience as source material to devise live, before your very eyes. Using a carefully trained set of strategies and basing the formula in a repertoire of ensemble driven work, the ensemble receives the source material in the company of the seated audience, interprets, questions, and associates it, and then quickly strategizes and plans a short devised piece to be performed immediately after.
TBD is being developed by Cucumber Dogs, a community devising ensemble, in association with Sitting Shotgun and will perform in October 2018 as a part of NYC Fringe Festival. Check back here for performance dates and ticket information soon!
The devising ensemble includes Essence Brown, Fernando Moya Delgado, Dane Giuffre, Brianna Janoczkin, Jamie Lowenstein, Devin Richey, Kelsey Senteio, and Stephanie Orta Vazquez. The creative team includes Galia Backal, Monica Furman, and Joe Scardino.
