New Society, World Premiere
“An innovative theatrical experiment … a whimsical excursion into make-believe.” —Boston Globe
Take a room full of total strangers, add in an eccentrically charismatic guide, and begin a charmingly evocative experiment in public collaboration. In her return to the stage, performer/writer/filmmaker Miranda July mines the banal and mundane elements of our lives and unearths humor, lyrical beauty, and surprising poignancy. July offers us a journey into the New Society—an elaborate concoction in a future to be that intertwines fiction and faith, audience and artist. It’s theater of the moment in the best possible sense, where each of us may play a part.
The Walker has had an ongoing relationship with the cross-disciplinary artist. Most recently, July’s second feature film The Future, praised by critics as “surreal, precious, devastating, and brilliant” (Playlist), had its area premiere at the Walker in 2011, after screenings at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals.
