Performed in a bathroom stall at the rebuilt La Mama theatre, Vacant/Engaged is an immersive performance experience that explores themes of anxiety, growth and renewal.
An innovative use of a common area, audience members are invited to individually enter a bathroom stall and discover someone crying, just needing to be alone. What follows is an honest monologue from a person who feels like a failure and is overwhelmed by life.
When everyday feels like walking on hot coals, can the person crying alone in the bathroom find the strength to journey down a new path?
Vacant/Engaged is an intimate exploration of the hope that can come from reaching rock-bottom.
