Myth Lab Drinxx
National Theatre Wales with Open Access Project Cardiff Lab
29 June 2020 (online)
The world is burning and we’re holding a fictional drinks reception, so we had better make it worthwhile.
Borrowing from the collective practices of fanfiction, Live Action Role Play (LARP), simple dance routines and improvised storytelling we invite you to shift usual habits of spectatorship and to hangout, lurk, and imagine.
The aim: a fictional universe producing new icons, set inside but against the dominating languages and myths of the present. The challenge: to uncover new modes of attention, participation and escape in times of social distancing and increased networked surveillance. Just come for the drinxx!
Myth Lab Drinxx is a performance hangout created by Owen G. Parry with participants and audiences.
