"Guests are free to find their own path, from the dark recesses of the basement to the illumination of the attic," tease press notes. Some of the characters audiences can expect to encounter include "The Bathtub Guru," "The Cook," "The Spirit in the Attic" and "Stranger Cat," each representing a different facet of the human psyche.
Houseworld is created by playwright and musician Andrew Hoepfner in collaboration with Mike Campbell. Performances are set to begin Oct. 8 with an official opening night set for Oct. 18. The show is scheduled to continue through Nov. 21.
"The surreal inhabitants of the house deliver a heightened sense of intimacy, which is often experienced one on one," state notes on the show's site, HouseWorldNYC. "Through exploring Houseworld, the audience is guided into the deepest parts of themselves."
Set in Brooklyn's San Damiano Mission, the show features an eclectic group of 20 performers, including G-train subway platform performer Joe Crow Ryan (the subject of VICE documentary "Life of a New York Subway Performer"); indie rock/pop artist Jason Trachtenberg; and composer/musician Jesse Paris Smith, daughter of Patti Smith.
Houseworld also features Angela Carlucci, Salvatore Musumeci, Jenny Reed, Ben Pagano, Dennie Hausen, Rick Patrick, Uriel Shlush-Reyna, Sherry Katapodes, Beth Pagano, Mike Campbell, Jesse Paris Smith, Jason Trachtenburg, Larkin Grimm and Joe Crow Ryan.
