a devised work of The LIDA Project
Tainted Pavement was a devised, site specific piece in which audience members experienced the work through a series of intimate character interactions. The ten interactions took place within a two-block radius in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood with audiences being guided seamlessly from one interaction to the next by the performers. Audience size was limited to four members per group and 10 groups per evening. The work was designed to blur lines between LIDA’s sculpted “characters” and the legitimate residents of the neighborhood with a particular exploration and emphasis on publicly viewable mental illness.
