ABOUT THE GRANT
- $33,000 to New York Live Arts to support Last Audience (MAP 2019)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Last Audience is a performance event that invites audience members to build and embody the work in real time. Set to premiere at New York Live Arts in October 2019, Last Audience grapples with questions of agency, manipulation and the complexity of negotiating the individual and the collective inside a theatrical context. The piece moves along the unstable space between the perfunctory and the transformative, twisting and reforming language from requiems and Greek classical tragedy. Enacted specifically and uniquely with and by each audience, Last Audience is a live laboratory for the communal work of conjuring.
