Ars Nova Experiences
It begins with P.S., a durational theatrical experience created collaboratively by director/developer Teddy Bergman (KPOP) and playwrights Sam Chanse and Amina Henry (both alumni of Ars Nova’s Play Group) with materials designed by Kimie Nishikawa (Dr. Ride’s American Beach House). Unfolding in real time beginning this November, P.S. brings intimate storytelling directly into the hands of audiences, as they receive letters sent between two characters isolated from each other during the pandemic. Arriving in the mail every few weeks, the letters and objects the characters exchange will weave a story that responds to the world we are living in until it’s once again safe to gather together.
The final act of P.S. will culminate with a live, in-person performance that reunites these characters — and welcomes audiences back — for a cathartic recognition of the historic period we’ve endured.
A second Ars Nova Experience, taking place in Spring 2021, will be announced at a later date.
