World Premiere Production in Brooklyn. Spring 2021.
Two people, a fish, a New York City apartment on top of a trailer bed, and you.
Exquisite Corpse Company is back with an interactive, immersive, and portable living diorama of 2020. Over the course of 35 minutes, the audience experiences an interactive, COVID-19 safe, live performance, and plays a role in dictating the way the story plays out. The project aims to explore interactivity and intimacy in a time of isolation. Functioning like a traveling peep-show, audience members peer inside a living room that is equal parts familiar and absurd as they experience a living room drama unlike any they’ve seen before.
