Tiny Dynamite presents Perfect Blue, a digital theatrical experience co-produced with British theater company Pursued By A Bear. Written by playwright G.S. Watson and directed by David O’Connor, the work features two actors on different continents: one performs for an audience at Christ Church Neighborhood House, while the other is projected into the production via a live-streaming video feed. Set in the year 2038, the play tells the story of two married scientists separated by an ocean on the brink of an environmental crisis. Communicating via a digital transatlantic link, the couple grapples with the strain on their relationship, as the audience questions the impact of technology on human connectivity.
