With this production, I’m venturing into new, fertile territory. Immersive & its close cousin Interactive theater has tremendous potential. In the case of "J & K 1965" it has the potential to give audiences an up-close look at drug addiction.
Say hello to EP_SHFT, the newest addition to Extended Play. It’s a shift from our typical interviews, features, and commentaries. It’s a shift in how we talk with our audience. And it’s a shift that lets you create with theater artists on Extended Play.
On September 7, 2016 at 6pm EDT, Extended Play editors James Carter and Tommy O’Malley will chat with Jessica Mitrani on Facebook Live about life, death, and her contribution to “The Undertaking,” our new production that kicks off an international tour at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival September 21-24.
The other part of this EP_SHFT is #UndertakingYou. We’re asking you to answer the question, “What do you think happens after you die?” Participants answered this question on Instagram and Facebook, and we’re sharing them on Extended Play. Join in the fun and be a part of this beautiful production.
