In September 2014, historic building on Governors Island was transformed into a living market in this immersive site-specific event. After a breezy ferry ride, the audience entered a fun and interactive world of booms and busts, as they followed a fictional currency company’s evolution from family business to publicly-traded corporation. Cash in hand, the audience chose how to invest their time and money.
TRADE PRACTICES was created by director Kristin Marting, and designer David Evans Morris (along with writers Erin Courtney, Eisa Davis, Robert Lyons, Qui Nguyen, KJ Sanchez, and Chris Wells and designers Liz Bourgeois, Jared Mezzocchi, Natalie Robin, Jane Shaw, and Gil Sperling). Performers were Jennifer Diaz, Daphne Gaines, Megan Hart, Brooke Ishibashi, Mike Iveson, Daniel Kublick, Pete McCabe, Mariana Newhard, Mary Rasmussen, and Dax Valdes. The show premiered on August 31, 2014. We are available for tour.
