–The Universe is a Small Hat (workshop play test) – May 27th at Silent Barn, Brooklyn
The Universe is a Small Hat is a participatory electronic music theater work created by César Alvarez, which tells the story of a techno-Utopian space colony leaving Earth in order to form a new, more rational, civilization. The piece is designed as an entirely interactive and narrative game. Audience members are all enlisted as colonists and responsible for their own paths within the story. Through music, interpersonal engagement, tasks, systems and choices The Universe is a Small Hat explores the roles we play and the space we occupy in society and the universe. The Joe’s Pub engagement is the first public performance of the music from this multi-disciplinary piece. The evening features musicians Eric Farber, Lorenzo Wolff, Chris Stromquist and more.
