7. Project Assemble, a Secret Guerrilla Art Show
As part of Exponential Festival, Project Assemble is a guerrilla, choose-your-own-adventure performance that transforms the mundane spaces of a well-known store in New York City into a series of worlds, fantasies and meditations. Participants are prompted to navigate and interact with the store through a series of choices and tasks. The resulting experience is part immersive theatre, part audio tour and an entirely unique experience for each person. The event will take place over the course of three weekends in January, starting January 16th.
Project Assemble is conceived and directed by Talya Chalef who previously directed Port City NYC, a performance piece looking at historical Dutch trade routes, Christopher Ross-Ewart (sound design), Jess Kaufman (theatre-maker/writer), David Blackman (app developer/theatre-maker/writer), and Johanna Kasimow (contributing theatre-maker). If you are an Untapped New York Insider, there will be a limited number of tickets available to members for free, reservations are open here.
