Due to the onset of the COVID-19 quarantine and social distancing restrictions, live theatre has been put on hold in the US since mid March, 2020. By August the infection rate had worsened in Los Angeles, our interdisciplinary theatre company’s home base. It was clear that our ability to convene as an ensemble, work together, and share our work with the public would be unsafe for some time to come.

We set about developing a way to work and create safely using digital technology available to us. Led by Artistic Director, Tina Kronis, a method was devised for generating material related to the current status of each of our collaborating ensemble members.

WHEN/WHERE

World Premiere: Oct 5,6 @ 18:30

“Instead of adapting a classic piece of literature or staging a play in a digital format, we decided to stop, step back and start over. Life was ‘on pause’ — a kind of intermission. In consideration of what we are experiencing due to the pandemic we looked to find the alphabet, so to speak, of a new language for working together. The means of digital communication – Zoom meetings, classes, phone conversations, and social media posts — were revealing people’s interests and what’s changing in their lives. I decided to take these elements and investigate them through a creative process by embraced the technology we found new ways to continue.” Tina Kronis
