ARCADE AMERIKANA

Role: Associate Producer 

Arcade Amerikana combines rave culture, cinema, and performance art to create a theatrical event specifically crafted for young people who would never ordinarily attend a play. The experience was performed in a warehouse space in Industry City, in a Performance Cube: All four walls are projector screens stretching 40 ft. long and 20 ft. wide. Audiences move freely within the cube, at one moment dancing with performers and the next sitting quietly on the floor. A live DJ is mixing in surrounding sound, immersive projection mapping and moving lights creating a club-like atmosphere

 

During its two-week-long run, we also utilized the space for our Arcade Amerikana AFTERS- a curated run of after-parties featuring musicians, DJs, performance artists, and more- the performances ran long into the night, every night.
