Conceived and directed by Collaboraction company member and Creative Director, Sam Porretta, and inspired by Lewis Hyde's "The Gift," G.I.F.T. explores the nature of gifts, community and culture while leading the audience on a partially open-aired journey through a sprawling warehouse compound and soundstage. An ensemble of 11 performers and a multi-disciplinary design team bring a new world to life in a production that is not a typical "holiday" offering. Otherworldly characters exist in strange worlds of their own and among the audience members, as they bring the audience on a journey that traverses through four different environments built within the 7,000 square foot compound that Collaboraction now calls home. In an interactive and transformative environment, audiences can participate and ruminate on gifting as we enter a season full of certain expectations.
