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 cant stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that never existed.
This is a show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.
Greg will speak to you through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. The performers will know almost nothing about the show before they walk on stage.
