Their objective is to create experiences for strangers to see each other in new ways, come together for shared encounters, and develop micro-communities through creative and radical intimacy. The culminating performance might take place in a black box theater, or might unravel over a three day road trip to Las Vegas.

Apply to be an audience member by submitting a few materials including a self portrait, a map of your home, and a postcard. People of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. All submissions will be displayed on our online gallery.
