EXQUISITE CORPSE COMPANY IN ASSOCIATION WITH GUILD HALL PRESENTS AN EXCLUSIVE WORKSHOP OF NEW SOCIALLY DISTANT INTERACTIVE PLAY, ZOETROPE 

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, APRIL 23 & 24

Two people, a fish, a New York City apartment on top of a trailer bed, and you. Exquisite Corpse Company returns to Guild Hall with an interactive, immersive, and portable living diorama of 2020. Written by ECC writers-in-residence Leah Barker, Emily Krause, and Elinor T Vanderburg, produced by Liz Frost, and co-directed by Porcia Lewis and Guild Hall Artist in Residence (2019) alumni and ECC’s Artistic Director Tess Howsam, ZOETROPE has been built, rehearsed, and will premiere in the John Drew Backyard Theater before moving to streets Brooklyn and beyond this summer.

Over the course of 35 minutes, the audience will experience an intimate, interactive live performance, and will play a significant role in dictating the way the story plays out, being prompted to select different tracks to direct the performance. 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.
