HEREafter, Episode 2 is coming!
A Physically Distanced Immersive Theater
HEREafter, Episode 2
A drive-in performance. A grief circle. A healing cypher atop an empty parking garage in South Downtown Atlanta. HEREafter, Episode 2 is a sensory experience that traverses the spaces we can and desire to inhabit in a physically restricted world. Building on the narrative of HEREafter Episode 1, which premiered to sold out audiences last fall inside the H.L. Green building, this multimedia production immerses the audience in the story of a family thrown into chaos after the death of their matriarch. Episode 2 is a standalone performance and does not require having attended Episode 1.
HEREafter Episode 2 is the creative team’s answer to the question: how do we experience togetherness safely and offer an intimate performative experience during a global pandemic? The five Atlanta-based cast members wrote and pre-recorded monologues, which were mixed and scored by New York-based sound designer John Glover, minimizing the need for spoken text. Coupled with choreography and staging by co-directors Kelly Bartnik (New York City) and Kathleen Wessel (Atlanta) in collaboration with the performers, the soundscore reveals inner and outer monologues, moving through grief and towards healing.
Run time is approximately 40-45 minutes.
