An interactive live art event, LUSH VALLEY is hatched by a creative artistic team and shaped nightly by an ever-expanding community of you. LUSH VALLEY invites audience members to abandon their spectator hats and become key players in shaping an alternative national ethos through real-time video interviews, citizenship tests, lectures, voting, and historical hallucinations. Have a hand in building LUSH VALLEY, your own idyllic-yet-realizable society, and rediscover this country as the home of differences.
LUSH VALLEY was created by dramaturg Yana Landowne, director Kristin Marting, and video artist Tal Yarden (along with writers Robert Lyons and Qui Nguyen and designers Oana Botez, Chris Kuhl, Clint Ramos and Jane Shaw). The show premiered on September 11th, 2011 at HERE. We are currently putting together an American tour leading up to the 2012 election.
