Tiny Dynamite will collaborate with British theater company Pursued By A Bear to present Perfect Blue, a simultaneous live and digital theatrical experience written for two actors on different continents: one performs for an audience in a Philadelphia theater, while the other is projected into the production via a live-streaming video feed. Set in the year 2038, the play tells the story of two married scientists separated by an ocean on the brink of an environmental crisis. Carys, a British scientist working for a giant biotech company in the US, communicates with her husband Michael, a professor in the UK, via a digital transatlantic link. Their relationship, already strained by separation, further deteriorates as audiences are left questioning the impact of technology on human connectivity. Starring Emma Gibson and Harry Smith, the stirring transmedia experience is written by Pursued By A Bear resident playwright Grant Watson, and directed by David O'Connor.


Additional unrestricted funds are added to each grant for general operating support.
