Play

Play is an interactive performance installation mounted in found spaces. Audience members are meant to discover the installation by chance (on the street, in a back room) and to interact with each puzzle’s unique environment and performer. There are four puzzles in the series: Sing, Dance, Draw, and Swim. To activate and solve a puzzle, audiences must rekindle their childhood sense of play and exploration. There is no predetermined or linear way to solve the puzzle. Challenges are encountered spontaneously and their solutions inspired by the moment. Play is intended for an audience-of-one. Alternatively,  it has been done with a very small participating audience, on public streets, with large observing audiences.
