AGNOSIA, a short form experience, asks a single audience member to step into a home turned upside-down by loss. Memory, recognition, and even sensory-experience all become unreliable as the audience is asked to examine how unexpected tragedy is absorbed into ones own identity and narrative. AGNOSIA combines the feverish collage-work of past Ceaseless Fun productions with a more audience-responsive format, allowing for an experience that is both rigorous and intimate.
-- The experience lasts 20-25 minutes.
-- Each timeslot accommodates one audience member.

AGNOSIA is the first of three happenings in THE OUTLINE OF A HUMAN, a thematically linked season that aims to define and describe the human condition through the use of negative space. The three shows, while not narratively linked, all meditate on loss, legacy, memory, & consumption through a variety of lenses.
CEASELESS FUN is an LA-based arts production group intent on making work that merges radical content with radical form. Their work has included immersive productions, concept parties, proscenium stage shows, and short-run literary publications. Past theatrical productions include Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan (2017), GRANDPA JOHNSON IS DEAD! (2016, in partnership with Scarlett Kim & Co.), and Dont Let the Bed Bugs Bite (2016).
