Here’s what you expect to see:
On stage, a group of gamer/performers aged 11 to 46 enact different mother-son narratives—from the Beowulf saga, to Bambi, to The Terminator—using the video game Minecraft. Inspired by the real-life relationship between Theatre Replacement’s Co-artistic Director, Maiko Yamamoto, and her 11-year-old son, Hokuto, and his obsession with Minecraft. MINE is live-operated from start to finish, and opens us up to expansive new territories in an intergenerational performance that both interrogates and recognizes the role technology plays in our modern parent-child relationships.
Please note: As we all know, things are changing every day. The Cultch’s plan is to move forward, while also doing their utmost to ensure the safety and health of our team. Please stay tuned to The Cultch and Theatre Replacement’s social media for updates on these plans as things continue to unfold.
