Project PlayBox – Virtual Theatrical Experience – (view/participate anytime from October 1st – 14th, 2020)
October 14, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 14, 2020
Theater 29 presents a DIY theatrical experience direct to YOU. Project PlayBox provides the theatrical building blocks: visual art, sound, and video. You bring the plays to life. Journey through space, time, and worlds. Citizens of the soon-to-be-lost island of Atlantis protest an unpopular government mandate in Against the Sand. A reluctant gnome on A Shiny Quest embarks on a search for the sparkliest plastic stone. And in Art of a Guest, a potential partnership is drawn to life through an unexpected gift.
With cut-out characters affixed to popsicle sticks and an animated video, travel to the soon-to-be-lost continent of Atlantis in Against the Sand. Next, garden drawings become a game board as an audio play guides you on A Shiny Quest. And in Art of a Guest, with cut-out characters in hand, printed art becomes a backdrop and a journal: a potential partnership is drawn to life as you immerse yourself in an audio play and turn each page.
