Elsewhere the play, performed by you
Elsewhere the play, performed by you is an original piece of autotheatre developed in residency at Elsewhere. Two participants are invited to perform at a time.
Each participant receives an iPod and a vest from Elsewhere’s collection. When they hit play (simultaneously) they hear prompts to move through the space, have a dialogue, perform actions, and to listen. They are the only performers of Elsewhere the play, and also the only audience members.
A: Do you know what Andy Warhol said?
B: Art is whatever you can get away with.
Elsewhere the play engages participants by playfully prompting them to perform bits of Elsewhere’s history and to have a conversation about the theories that inform Elsewhere’s organizational structure. It aims for a praxis point between an objective, fact-based history, and a subjective, personal experience of the museum.
