Among Us UCLA
March 1, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
“A strikingly personal experience…I considered my own ideas and notions of community in a new way…” — Los Angeles Magazine
UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television Assistant Professor Marike Splint is a theater maker from the Netherlands who specializes in creating work in public spaces that explores the relationship between people, places and identity. Among Us — UCLA is an audio-theater experience that navigates participants throughout the UCLA campus, while inviting active observation, quiet contemplation and self-revelation to explore the tension between our desire to belong and our desire to be free. The audience members are the protagonists and UCLA is the stage. A voice heard through headphones prompts the spectators to consider how they relate to the strangers on the streets and what they can imagine about their lives. The experience culminates in a game of choice and affiliation that gradually illuminates the hidden social structures that define us.
Limited to 30 people per performance. Please note this performance involves walking about one mile through public space. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, and bring water, a hat and/or sunscreen. Please contact the box office if you require any special assistance with regards to mobility.
This project has been realized with generous support of: Oerol Festival, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Consulate General of The Netherlands in New York, UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television and The Netherland-America Foundation.
Among Us — UCLA is produced with Los Angeles Performance Practice.
