- Fri, Jan 5
- Sat, Jan 6
Director: Eric Magnée, Nicholas Robert Thayer, Paul Staring, Shea Elmore, Steye Hallema Run Time: 60 min.
For the first time on the West Coast, join us for incredible interactive experiences and games that play out not just on mobile phones, but connect us to one another IRL! Jump in to help us make music, master the art of love and learn to speak only in Emoji? Heck yeah! Charge your phone all the way to 100, bring your friends and get ready for the night of your life…
Music for Smartphones (5 minutes)
Rather than smartphones separating the audience by pulling focus towards their screens, this interactive performance has audience members come together to experience a unique moment of connectivity. This short, meditative piece has been translated into multiple languages and performed all over the world, captivating audiences along the way.
Emojiii (25 minutes)
This crazy 25-minute group experience is guaranteed to break the ice by creating unexpected connections! Emoji is the language spoken by most people in the world. (Everyone with a smartphone at least). But…do emojis really help us express ourselves more freely and precisely, or do our intentions end up getting lost in translation?
A 30 minute Q&A will follow this event.
