The Game Show

Showtimes at 2P and 4P.

In conjunction with the exhibition Crit Group Reunion, program alum Bug Davidson premieres a new theater work The Game Show. This live performance is a structured collaboration modeled after the externalized negotiations surrounding authority, desire, and production inherent in gaming.

Players' experimental activity generates flow states and moments of synchronicity, providing insight into how equitable casting, programming, and community organizing benefit art spaces and revealing how agents within a group space negotiate conditions of work, creativity, and joy.

Cast and crew include Shannon Stott, Michael Anthony Garcia, Erica Gionfriddo, Kayla Abuda Galang, Eliot Gray Fisher, Amber Rademacher, and Matt Rebholz.
