Invisible City Article

"In one part of the city, writers type out observations of the world unfolding around them. In another part of the same city, a town crier receives these observations via a tablet — a modern day version of the trusty scroll. The criers ring their bells and declare these observations to the public. Drawing upon patterns of relaying information that mirror Twitter or Facebook, Town Criers treats everyday considerations as the news. Intimate and minute details are transmitted through the ether, and then filtered through the live body in an oratorical sculpture."

Step into an extraordinary environment constructed by seven unlikely architects - theatre artists, dancers, and a musician. The builders are at work, tirelessly creating the realms of their dreams. In a chaotic merging of theatre and installation, The Builders investigates transformation, territory and the practice of making ourselves at home in the world.
