Wild Places Workshop


Austin theater collective Rude Mechs offers groundswell a slot in their Rude Fusion series. 

Groundswell will produce six immersive experiments about drugs, healers, and the unknown. Each performance invites the audience to take part in an interactive aspect of this play-in-development. Wild Places, written by Austin playwright Joanna Garner, explores the ways we as Americans attempt to heal and control our minds and bodies. 

Each weekend's performances feature actors  Zoey Cane Belyea and Sean Moran, among others, and is guided by rotating lead collaborators. 

March 3 & 4: Led by director Michael Rau with Seattle filmmaker Nik Perleros
March 10 & 11: Led by writer/choreographer Patrick Shaw
March 17 & 18: Led by director Katie Van Winkle

There might be trampolines, psychedelics, blood, snakes, or bouncy balls. Very limited seating available— reservations highly encouraged. Tickets are on sale here (sliding scale start at $6). 

This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
