Created by Mexico City based ensemble Pentimento, PLAY is an interactive audio-guided performance that invites 10 audience members into a playfully accelerated process of actor training. Eight short lessons offer warm-up’s, breathing exercises, lectures, videos, improvisation, and even tips for mingling at post-show parties. PLAY asks: Can an untrained viewer be transformed into a professionally prepared actor in a mere 45 minutes?
PLAY serves as Pentimento’s response to the preponderance of acting programs in Mexico City, and the mass production of “trained” young actors who face daunting odds in securing professional work. To create PLAY, director Isabel Toledo personally undertook a new acting methodology each month, for six months. As a result, the work serves as both an interrogation of the state of the craft and a surprising portrait of the artist, enacted by 10 strangers.
