On August 25th in collaboration with Artswest, Die Cast, a Philadelphia immersive theatre company presents a digital performance piece that explores personal isolation during a time of societal isolation-inventing new modes of performance in the process. Using a single hotel room as the location for a series of nine short pieces, Temporary Occupancy explores how our lives are connected by more than the physical rooms we share.
Founded in 2017, by Brenna Geffers and Thom Weaver, Die-Cast’s work as a company explores new relationships between the visitor and space. Die-Cast incubates work within spaces that are often inaccessible to audiences or are not thought of as performace spaces – ballrooms, historical mansions, and even schooner ships – looking to fill those spaces with the work and have the work shaped by the space in turn. Recently, they have begun creating work for digital spaces, allowing audiences to choose their own adventures using chatbots, Buzzfeed quizzes, embedded videos and other digital wizardry – hence, digital immersive theater.
Temporary Occupancy was created by Die-Cast Co-founders Brenna Geffers and Thom Weaver as well as Anthony Crosby, Colleen Corcoran, Jahzeer Terrell, Keith Conallen, Steven Wright
