On the day of the first performance (WE HOPE— NO RAIN, gods of rain, please!!!) I wanted to post some aesthetic inspirations for this particular piece-¬†see links below:
and this is stuff I found after we started working::
All of these sources deal in many different stories happening at the same time- beautiful, human interactions that center on one larger event or feeling (be it drinking a Pepsi, or watching a ship dock).¬†STARBOX is about the multiplicity of forms in which connection happens, and whether social networking has anything to do with it.
We must acknowledge the lovely Erica Pearson from NY Daily News found out about us from a facebook invite that one of our cast members sent her, and then Gothamist reported on what the Daily News said, NY Mag reported on the Gothamist version of the Daily News article, and NBC, Encore Magazine, 1010 Wins, WNYC, and Good Magazine followed suit. And much of the information about the box was originally taken from our twitter account. A phenomenal FIRST ACT to our three act play about hype.
We hope that all of the reporters who have done an incredible job covering this event will come experience the line for themselves.
Love + Buzz,
