Love & Geography is an interactive performance adaptation of the 1885 play by Bjronstjerne Bjornsen. Piehole has created an abandoned roadside museum, where audiences press buttons to activate exhibits featuring characters and scenes from the play, trapped in different geographical biomes. Exhibits employ table top puppetry, video, diorama, live-actors-as-animatronic-robots, an animatronic robot camel head, and toy theater. This clip is from near the end, as the museum begins to fall out of the hands of its curator and visitors, and the exhibits find themselves staging a sort of coup.
We performed the show in September 2009 at Vox Populi Gallery as part of Philly Fringe and in October 2009 at HERE Arts Center. The show was adapted/directed by Tara Ahmadinejad, designed by Jeff Wood, and co-developed/produced by Piehole. Performers: Patrick Harrison, Alice Winslow, Allison LaPlatney, Jonathan Harris, Jeff Wood, Rachel Richman, and Emily Friend Roberts. Sound by Josie Holtzman and Nick Van Der Kolk. Ed Bear designed and implemented the homemade microcontrolled button-system operating various light-up fixtures, video monitors and animatronics.
