This completely immersive multiscreen performance features a mysterious character called txt (pronounced “text”) who recites a script written anonymously in real-time by a live audience (on the internet).
As the content is based entirely upon what audience members write in anonymity, this limited capacity show may contain mature themes, profane language, and explicit sexual content. Happening on Zoom, audience members must keep their camera and microphone on the entire show.
“#txtshow is the most fun subverting the lines between audience and creator that you’ll have this pandemic.” – Thinking Theater NYC
“I found myself laughing louder than ever at this performance. The uninhibited mind is a strange and quirky beast... #txtshow [is] a Mad Lib with an emphasis on Mad.” – Analog Artist Digital World
“This online pandemic world we live in is NOT favorable to theater events. While parking is cheaper and you can bring your own beer, there’s no sense of audience or shared discovery. But if you MUST do a show online, #txtshow might be the archetype.” – Ink 19
Warning: Contains frequent coarse language, sudden loud noises, high level of audience participation, potentially triggering content or themes
“An experience unlike anything in live theater.”
– DC Metro Theater Arts
“With #txtshow, Feldman has succeeded at creating something that tests the limits of theatre as a form and plays with the boundaries of the performer-spectator relationship.”
– No Proscenium
“I had no idea what to expect for my first live show on the internet, but this was a pretty amazing introduction... all eclectically performed as almost a stream of consciousness by Feldman’s character.”
“Suffice it to say that in this horrible period during which live performance has been suspended and the lively arts are experimenting with alternative ways in which to engage the audience and remain relevant, #txtshow is an offering that embraces the imposed limitations of the moment.”
– DC Theatre Scene
