Presentation and conversation with We Players

This April, we present a presentation and conversation with Ava Roy, Artistic Director of the We Players.

Since 2000, We Players has presented site-integrated performance events that use the finest works of classical theatre to transform public spaces into realms of participatory theater. Extending the transformative powers of performance beyond the stage into the notable public spaces of the Bay Area, they invite their collaborators and audience to engage fully with the spectacular world around us.

Their latest works have included The Odyssey on Angel Island, Hamlet on Alcatraz, and The Tempest at the Albany Bulb. From SFists review of their latest show, Macbeth at Fort Point:

Another affecting moment was during the banquet scene, where audience members crowd a long table and snack on bread, fruit and cheese. Macbeth, haunted by the bloody ghost of Banquo (played by Nikolas Strubbe), advances down the tabletop, gibbering and raving. As Banquo's ghost hovers at the far end of the table, the foghorn moans and the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. I forgot all about being cold and needing to pee: at Fort Point, ghosts have never felt more real. — SFist

      We are not streaming, as we haven't figured out a good enough quality livestream setup. But we will be recording! And the video should go up on our website within a few days.

    Hi all -- we are looking for a videographer who would be willing to take high-quality video of this talk and our future talks, so we can preserve them for posterity and also share with experience designers outside of the Bay Area.

    Does anyone know someone who'd be up for this and charge a very reasonable rate? Email me: [masked]. THANKS A LOT!
