The Universe is a Small Hat


September — December, 2014


~

The Universe is a Small Hat is a participatory electronic music theater work, which tells the story of a techno-Utopian space colony leaving Earth in order to form a new, more rational, civilization. The piece is designed as an immersive 75-player narrative game. Audience members are all enlisted as colonists, given specific occupations on the ship, and responsible for their own fate within the story. The piece ran 9 times at Babycastles Gallery, between Sept 2014 and Jan 2015.

Featuring:
The Universe is a Small Hat, by Cesar Alvarez and co.
