Celebrate Center Theatre Group’s 50th Anniversary Season with a pedestrian-based live art experience. Participants will join a group of 50 people exploring Los Angeles on a guided audio tour that seems to follow them as much as they are following it, directed and produced by award-winning international documentary theatre team Rimini Protokoll. Participants are provided with a soundtrack to the streets, sights and rooftops of Los Angeles. A computer-generated voice sets them out on a trail through the city, guiding the group’s movements in real time. The performance reveals a “secret Los Angeles,” journeying to places normally unseen, places where humans encounter their limits, places where crowds gather, back alleyways, dark hallways and common areas seen through a new lens. At times the group is given tasks—take the Metro or travel at a new pace. Participants are not just audience members, they are actors and spectators, observers and observed, individuals and a pack, all at the same time.
