Third Rail Projects, the creators of the long-running immersive show Then She Fell, has teamed up with Arts Brookfield once again for a site-specific pop-up experience that will take place within the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place (the shopping, dining, and office complex on the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan).
Titled Oasis and set in the 1980s, the immersive show tells the story of four over-worked dreamers who unexpectedly find themselves swept into a mirage.
Oasis will be free and open to the public and will kick off April 1.
Over the course of ten daily episodes, performers chase the promise of escape with quirky interactions, ’80s dance moves, and fleeting imagery. After a two-week series of lunchtime vignettes, a culminating performance will occur on the evening of April 12.
Oasis is conceived, directed, and choreographed by Jennine Willett, in collaboration with performers Julia Kelly, Madison Krekel, Edward, Rice, Jessy Smith, and Ryan Wuestewald. Third Rail Projects' Co-Artistic Directors are Tom Pearson, Zach Morris, and Willett.
Third Rail Projects was also behind the critically acclaimed 2015 production of The Grand Paradise, an immersive show in which audiences traveled to a late-1970s tropical resort.
