Upside Downside Theatre
Upside Downside Theatre presents Hot Five
After dark, taking a voyeuristic look through the floor-to-ceiling windows of Marvin’s house reveals a glimpse into curiosities of armchair Theorist/Psychiatrist, Marvin. This site-specific, immersive theatre piece interactively delves into one of life's greatest mysteries: where do emotions come from?
Amongst an extensive library of over two-thousand books and loft-style living room, we animate inner workings of the mind. Where the living room ceiling used to be now hangs a 20-foot rope and trapeze. Elements of philosophy and contemporary circus interpret aspects of Marvin’s intellectual and creative brains-- one part theorist, one part psychologist, and one part gymnast. Anecdotal stories are interwoven with theory, as the audience moves through Marvin’s house. Take a glimpse into Marvin’s carnival of mind, matter, and the source of emotions...and he may just invite you inside.
