"There is something secluded in the very nature of a hotel room – a place where normal life is disrupted and a new, temporary, and isolated existence is suddenly born. The many lives that have existed in the room quietly accrue like ghosts. And yet, the vivid present is all that matters for the person who has taken temporary occupancy in a place that is designed to never be a home. Created by Philadelphia immersive theater company Die-Cast, in partnership with ArtsWest, TEMPORARY OCCUPANCY is a digital immersive performance piece that explores isolation during a time of isolation – inventing new modes of performance in the process. Using a single hotel room as the location for a series of nine short pieces, TEMPORARY OCCUPANCY explores how our lives are connected by more than the physical rooms we share."
