The Brick Presents THE DANCE AND THE DAWN: A THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE FOR 13 PLAYERS, Now thru 7/15
The Brick Theater, Inc. and Warren Tusk present The Dance and the Dawn: A Theatrical Experience for 13 Players as part of Game Play: a Festival of Video Game Theater tonight, July 11, 7pm, Sun July 13, 6pm (special performance of Dreams of Ice and Ash expansion), and Tue July 15, 7pm.
Six beautiful Ladies came to the court of the Queen of Ice for a midnight ball, and there danced with seven noble Lords, all in pursuit of the True Love that could heal their hearts. The conclusion of that tale...is up to you.
The Dance and the Dawn is a piece of interactive literature: a play without a script or an audience. Thirteen players will take on the roles of nobles in a gothic fairy-tale realm, convened for a great ritual dance, who have one night to find love and redemption. Their choices and their acting will determine the shape of the story that unfolds. The event lasts about four hours, which will be taken up with dancing and dueling and courtly intrigue - and, of course, with the eternal hope of romance and joy.
All tickets: $20 Very Limited Availability. All tickets must be purchased prior to the event with time to prepare for the interactive performance.
Only at The Brick, 579 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
