Immersive Site-Specific Devised Theatre
The Ice House, Phoenix, Arizona
An immersive site-specific experience about women, writing, and madness. The Ice House is known internationally as a venue for the avant-garde. The historic Icehouse itself is a true work of art, a rich meld of refined elegance and the industrial edge. Awarded an ASU Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts grant.
Surveillance camera system captured performers and audience throughout ten rooms on three floors, which played back on forty-plus televisions that were integrated into the space.
