We are looking for a group of people to help us in the development process by participating in the project and giving us feedback. Fill out the form below to reserve your spot. The closing date to sign up is November 9th at 11:59pm (AST)!
Keep Good (Theatre) Company is proud to present the prototype production of Gonzalo’s Map, a theatrical experience that will take you on a journey through TikTok videos, live streams, Zoom calls and *gasp*, real hard copy letters.
Prosper is dying in a long term care home alone and estranged from his family. Ariella is his fifteen-year-old granddaughter who hasn’t seen him in years. Gonzalo, an old family friend, must try and reunite them before it is too late.
How it works:
When you sign up to come on this journey, you will receive fragments of communication every day for a week.
Starting on Monday the 23rd of November you will receive a letter that wasn’t meant for you. Read it. On Tuesday the 24th you will receive TikTok videos you might never have watched. Watch them. On Wednesday the 25th you will receive an invitation to a live stream. Stream it. On Friday the 27th, you will receive a link to a Zoom call that you must attend at 6:00pm (AST)
Created by Keep Good (Theatre) Company's Co-artistic director Laura Vingoe-Cram, Mary Vingoe, Garry Williams, Kiana MacDonnell, Anna Shepard and Catherine Banks. Gonzalo’s Map stars, Kiana MacDonnell as Ariella and Garry Williams as Gonzalo.
Please note: Once you sign up you will receive an email that will confirm your participation, and you will start receiving fragments around the 23rd of November. Fragments will be sent to you by email or by mail. There is no need to have a TikTok account to participate in this project. Each fragment is no longer than fifteen minutes and could be watched in real-time or whenever it suits your schedule. The only part of the experience you must show up for is the ZOOM call on Friday, November 27th, 2020 at 6:00pm (AST)
