If you’re reading this blog…chances are you are “in with the times” and have seen a reality TV show. BUT have you ever seen a reality show/theatrical production performed in a house built in MASS MoCA? Habit by David Levine will be performed at MASS MoCA on February 24 through February 27.
The Easthampton Star explains, â€śFrom the beginning, thereâ€™s plenty of sex, drugs, and rock â€™nâ€™ roll piled on until the deep, dark secret is allowed to blow the whole thing apart. What is different here is that once it does, the action starts over from the beginning, following the same script but with different stagings, determined solely by the actorsâ€™ choices.â€ť
We went into Hunter Theater to see how the project was coming along for the production crew.
The crew was busy installing the walls in which the actors will live within.
The house includes windows and peep-holes for the audience to peer into and watch the story unfold.
When we dropped by the theater the next day- obvious progress had been made!
The doors are real, the refrigerator is stocked, and the plumbing works!
The crew was hard at work! They continued to build the monstrous set throughout the day.
Here’s a pic of Tim, Matt, and Michael diligently working at a team. We love our crew here at MASS MoCA!
Now that you have seen a preview of all the hard-work put into this project come see Habit, an exploration of sensationalism and realism, at MASS MoCA!
