Generic Ensemble Company Presents: What's Goin' On?
What’s Goin’ On is an epic journey of many stories inspired by other works (including The Good Person of Szechwan by Bertolt Brecht), found objects, and Anne Bogart’s Viewpoints. The stories are woven together by the mostly-queer, mostly-people-of-color cast and through the use of site-specific theatre, complete with a roving audience throughout The Vortex compound.
The ensemble examines the juxtaposition of virtue and money along with the dichotomies of good and evil, male and female, wealth and poverty, coercion and consent, and artifice and authenticity. This devised, immersive theatre piece pushes boundaries literally and figuratively by disregarding the fourth wall and consciously engaging or disengaging the audience throughout the performance.
