Back in September, local performers Minna Lee, Andrew Schneider, and Fox Whitney led an interactive project dealing with the process of rebuilding connection amid the COVID-19 lockdown, with scenes featuring everything from video conference calls to a "full embrace" with a complete stranger. Audience members didn't just observe the show—they were active participants tasked with learning lines from any one of a series of short scenes and acting them out in socially distant locations throughout the city or, in some cases, over video. "It speaks to that loneliness, but it also speaks to the intense care people still have for people they don't know in the midst of all this," Whitney told Crosscut. Now, join the project's creative team for an online screening of a selection of the short videos.
