Behind Closed Doors a multi-disciplinary immersive experience combining theatre, film and public art.
We are developing Behind Closed Doors with playwright and screenwriter MJ Kaufman as the primary writer, and with theatre and film director NJ Agwuna.
The project centers around a narrative exploring the secrets we keep around sexuality and the shame we feel around desire. Sexuality is often a taboo subject, not often shared or spoken about with others.
The public art structures, created by designer Irina Kruzhilina will place the audience in a unique role to the performers and the films, mimicking how we might overhear others’ private thoughts, peering through windows and listening through doorways. Awarded a NY Women’s Fund grant, this project will receive a workshop presentation in 2023 and a fully-mounted production in 2024.
