Featuring two unrehearsed performers who have never met, Celebration, Florida by Greg Wohead is a quietly surreal show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.
Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can't stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that perhaps never existed.
Greg will speak to the audience through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. They will know almost nothing about the show when they walk onstage.

Everything was Stolen is a piece created from a variety of stolen and original (but mostly stolen) texts, songs, videos, images and ephemera in an evocation of America (which was also stolen - hey!), inspired in part by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, and in part by something American composer John Cage once said: ‘And so it is out of this chaos, this accumulation of history and novelty, that we begin building.’
The piece was originally developed by Emily K. Harrison with students at Brunel University London, and will continue to be developed with a Colorado-based cast for the March 2019 professional World Premiere.
