Extremely Public Displays of Privacy ACT 3: PRIVACY
Audiences are encouraged to stray outside the normal boundaries of theatre art in Extremely Public Displays of Privacy, a three-part performance experience from New Paradise Laboratories.. The interactive cross-media, music and theatre piece begins online on September 2 as part of the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival, then travels through Center City Philadelphia and concludes with a live show as part of the Philly Fringe in September. It then continues to play through October 1st.  

Audiences will delve deeply into the evolving relationship between Fess Elliot--mother, schoolteacher and undiscovered singer/songwriter, and Beatrix Luff (Bea)performance artist, "cool hunter," and mysterious entrepreneur, as they meet online.  First, Bea sweeps Fess off her feet and into a surreal game of escalating public dares; then Fess begins to question who Beatrix really is and just how public she wants her life to be.

The boundary-crossing, award-winning director Whit MacLaughlin tempts the adventurous theatergoer to engage with the work in new ways by merging the virtual and real worlds through the three very different acts. "Act 1 begins in the Internet," says MacLaughlin, "then Acts 2 and 3 get you up and out of your chair, keyboard-tapping fingers go on holiday, and you investigate the physical world as you might the digital world. We're aggressively exploring the web as a performance space. Can the web be a place where art happens," he continues, "not just where you find out about it? We are making a piece not about the Internet--but inside the Internet. "
