Alone: In a Crowded Room

by Clownlife Arts

Part of the 2021 Festival at a special location
Fri   10/1   7:00p      

This production was held in a venue across the block from Factory Obscura. Patrons met at Factory Obscura and were then led to the performance location. 

Everything is connected, but nothing matters. Until we decide something matters, then it does, until we decide it doesn’t anymore. Follow? Me neither. Welcome to the Absurd, as inspired by existential philosophy. This immersive and audience-driven romp through the existential void will explore everything and nothing, nonsensically. Neither a comedy nor a tragedy, but both, Alone in a Crowded Room will connect the audience, with an apologetically grumpy clown, and together they explore the importance, and lack thereof, of each moment, and the very nature of reality, or something. Either way, it’s a CLOWN SHOW. There will be balloons. Hazaa!
