Casting invites a small audience of 6 - 12 participants to see whether they have that star power it takes to book the big gig. Absurd and poignant, Casting is an intimate, immersive experience by Koryn Wicks that invites attendees to explore the choices we make when we want to stand out and those we make when we want to connect. The experience combines theater, dance and interactive sound and video design.
Casting took home the grand prize at the 2019 L.A. Immersive Invitational. Under the artistic direction of Koryn Wicks, the original collaborators included a diverse group of artists working in immersive design, technology and performance. This unique piece left a lasting impression on festival attendees and organizers at the LA Immersive Invitational.
"Originally conceived in 48 hours and performed within the timespan of a typical audition, Koryn Wicks Casting is a surrealist masterwork that continues to stick with me 3 years after its original run and has made me reconsider what is possible in immersive. Achingly heartfelt, scathingly satirical, and one of the most honest and vulnerable theatrical experiences I've ever had. Its a cathartic and eye-opening piece sure to inspire empathy and awe for the tens of thousands of Angelenos who do this every day. Simply put: Casting is a must-see."
- Graham Wetterhahn, Producer and creator of the LA Immersive Invitational, Artistic Director of After Hours Theater Company
We are committed to making Casting available to everyone who would like to see it and have therefore made tickets pay what you can, with a minimum cost of $5 and a suggested cost of $20.
If everyone pays $20 for their ticket we will be able to break even on the production. The last couple years have been very challenging for creators and performers working in live theater, if you are able to support the show with a $20 ticket we greatly appreciate it.
Of course, if you are independently wealthy, we encourage you to 'be a Medici' and be as generous as you can be with your ticket price.
Casting is an in-person, participatory experience, audience members should plan to be active participants during the entire, 20-30min duration of the performance. Active participation includes being physically present and moving through space. The intensity and scale of physical activity during the experience can be determined by a given audience members ability.
Audiences will engage in dialogue with actors and participate in moderate (familial) physical touch with performers.
Any persons with questions about participatory elements and/or accommodations encouraged to reach out to the production at email@example.com.
In an effort to help limit the spread of COVID19 we ask that all attendees wear masks for the duration of the performance.
All performers and personnel involved in Casting will take a COVID test prior to each evenings run of shows.
