Abrons Arts Center
An individual fully immersive gaming-inspired performative installation experience, You May Meet Her guests experiment with choice, if/then scenarios, social contract, and the process of being physically present in an unfamiliar location with the intention to meet an unfamiliar person to create a curious narrative and a singular experience.
Ms. Connections' house has been transported to Abron's Arts Center April 17-25 in preparation for her to receive guests.
Ms. Connections is a non-verbal clown who suffers from loneliness & papers her walls with Yellow Pages pages to comfort herself. She has prepared her house with 60 action items that once triggered activate a response to delight her guests. A single guest (interactor) enters the 12x16 room and are informed of the rules of the space by a crew member, and then are free to begin exploration. Four voyeurs watch from a small enclosed anteroom. Ms. Connections has hired entertainment for the evening, procured snacks, engaged security staff, and is opening her house for one guest at a time for a visit of 20-25 minutes. Guests may arrive 20 minutes before their scheduled visit to watch the crew working from the outside of the installation.
