THRESHOLD is a mini-participatory experience in which audience members have the opportunity to become a part of the work. Based on the idea of a doorway and the thought of, “What’s on the other side?,” audience members will participate in a live devising process to create a new performance piece just for them. THRESHOLD is both an experiential journey and an exercise in listening and hearing human stories. This fleetingly intimate piece seeks to find what human connection is left and offers a chance to not only be heard, but also validated.
Taking place in Washington Square Park, this piece also intends to bring radical joy and good energy to a highly politicized space, allowing for a sense of taking back public space by the people, for the people. THRESHOLD is an absurd, whimsical, process based adventure and looks to create the gift of a common experience for those who choose to join us on this collaborative journey to whatever is on the other side.
