June 21st – June 29th, 2018
Written by David Gagnon Walker
Directed by Geoffrey Simon Brown
PREMIUM CONTENT is a play about art, consent, polyamory and the internet. It’s a play about boundaries: In relationships, in art, and the grey space where they converge. It’s a play about the difference between a funeral and a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s a play about trying really hard to be really cool.
“Everything feels the same
As everything else
Because like everything’s like right there like right in front of you all the time, and
And like in like your pocket on your phone and like you
Like everyone’s always talking about everything all at once”
In an age where you can access anything online, how do you know what is truly good, and what is truly bad? Featuring live video feeds, innovative design, and an ensemble engaging in the impossible, PREMIUM CONTENT is an entirely live performance experience. Every night the ensemble of six actors will switch roles, adopting one of thousands of possible casting scenarios, to flip the gender and power dynamics within the work. Utilizing live recording in each performance, Quickdraw Animation’s Tyler Klein Longmire will create a new animation video each night, reflective of the unique casting, to be presented as part of the performance.
“Premium Content is a bold, refreshing play about personal boundaries and breaching personal boundaries. What is free and what is not free? Rigorous in form and intellectually stimulating, the young characters in Walker’s play live on the edge of their desires, bringing us into a world that is as up to date as tomorrow.”
