Level5 @The Hammer
"Level5 is a live action role playing performance piece by Brody Condon, based on the Bay Area self actualization seminars of the 1970’s. Condon’s work draws together disparate communities - performative folk artists, performance artists, and practioners of experimental theater - to explore the construction of the self. In this two day participatory piece, fifty players will transform via the characters, or alibis, that they assume." Visitors are welcomed to watch Level5 live-streamed via video to the Billy Wilder Theater at The Hammer today and Sunday from 1-5pm.
