Here’s something super cool:

–We’ve begun getting the music together for a new show entitled, The Universe is a Small Hat.  A fully immersive, site-specific experience set within a techno-utopian space colony mission, Small Hat will collaborate with insane game designer Ivan Safrin, and SoHo Repertory Theater Artistic Director Sarah Benson, to develop an immersive world where the audience has complete agency over their own experience – and over the outcome of the entire piece.  Much more info to follow…
