"THE DISTANCE BETWEEN IGNORANCE & KNOWLEDGE IS A JOURNEY WE SHOULD ALL TAKE" - Jayson Bartlett
HISTORY OF NOW
This powerful and unflinching insight delves deeply into the mechanism of humanity.
Correlating between the past and present drives the strong narrative and meticulously staged flashbacks which makes this piece of immersive theatre an experience that breaks down, the fourth wall between audience and stage.
How does this work?
We will upload video footage from rehearsals, script meetings, interviews with the cast, technical and backstage staff as well as the writer-director, you will be able to comment and ask questions as you prepare yourself to be a part of the on-site experience. You will receive ID Cards that match those implemented in Nazi Germany from 1938 each will carry an interactive serial number that you may use to further your experience beyond the site, here you can leave comments, personal experiences, or ask questions about the production.
During the performance and before you will find yourself immersed within the story and its characters, allowing you to build relationships beyond the veil of stage and audience.
The play is demanding, both in performance and to witness. It requires heightened attention, which Bartlett explains "Is part of the unique value of live theatre." The story immerses us into a world that flicks between the familiar historical facts that have forged our understanding, however, this is where the story creates a unique level of engagement, while offering no conclusion itself it places the burden upon the audience as it challenges respectfully those worn out facts leading to the question "where does the real responsibility lay?"
