Richard E. Rauh Studio Theatre
12 Peers Theater presents:
by Nassim Soleimanpour
May 2 – 19
Performed by a new actor at each performance and continuing the formal experiment that marked White Rabbit Red Rabbit, Nassim Soleimanpour brings us Blank. Through a joint effort between audience and performer, the gaps in the script are filled in to reveal a story that celebrates the human imagination. As formally inventive as it is engaging, Blank reverses the typical theatre experience: A script riddled with blanks leaves the audience in charge of how the story will unfold. The concept might be simple, but the result is nothing short of empowering as a random audience member sees his or her future determined by the imagination of others.
Blank runs May 2-19. All shows at the Richard E. Rauh Studio Theatre at the University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning, 4200 Fifth Avenue, Level B, Pittsburgh, PA 15260. Thursday-Saturday, 8 pm, Sunday, 2pm. There is a special Name Your Own Price performance on Monday, May 13 at 8 pm.
