I truly don’t know what to expect.
Tomorrow night, April 28th, marks the debut of The Bootleggers present WILD TIMES 20/80!!! (stop it you lazy prohibition sluts): an audience-immersive performance-party by the Battery Candle Theatre Collective, which will run until Thursday night.
The site-specific show is created, directed, and co-choreographed by Kev Berry, and will take place at Saratoga Music Hall at 6:45 April 28-30. I’d try to succinctly summarize the show, but I think the best I can do is just provide the description from the show’s Facebook event.
The Bootleggers present WILD TIMES 20/80!!! (stop it you lazy prohibition sluts) is a two-hour promenade performance. This means that guests will be asked and encouraged to explore the space freely for the duration of the party. The experience is a personal journey and you may find yourself separated from your group. This also means that there is no seating. If you feel that to enjoy a theatrical event, you would require a seat, we are sorry, but this may not be the show for you. No concessions will be made on this matter.
Tickets are free, and guests will be required to wear provided white Venetian ball masks for the duration of the performance and are strongly encouraged to adhere to a decadent dress code in shades of white, grey, black, and gold, with comfortable footwear and contact lenses instead of spectacles, if possible.
WILD TIMES 20/80!!! also features an ensemble of performers from the Theater and Dance departments, as well as co-choreography by Jacqueline Courchene and installation design by Mercury Hogan.
In other words, there are a whole lot of people involved with this interesting piece of work–and the piece is totally student-produced by Berry with the help of grants–so high-tail it over to Saratoga Music Hall for what is sure to be an exciting and different performance experience.
