Los Angeles, CA- In the spirit of experimental and nontraditional theater, comes The Car Show, a part theater, part drive-in movie, part car wash spectacle and part radio experiment and part radio experiment. The Car Show is presented by Thump Thump, an experimental event planning/production company created by writer/director Christopher Cole. The Car Show explores our ideas about communication through intimate dialogue between a teacher and his underage girlfriend. The audience becomes voyeurs as they watch and hear the performance from their cars. The Car Show will perform Monday-Friday, August 2-6, 2010 at 9pm at Prestige Parking Lot in Downtown LA at 201 S. Beaudry Avenue (at the corner of 2nd Street and Beaudry Avenue), Los Angeles, CA 90026. Audiences should arrive no later than 8:45 pm. Tickets are free and by reservation only. To reserve tickets, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
In The Car Show, we find Daron, a teacher in his 20s, and Geneva, his underage girlfriend, driving to his house to consummate their possible affair. Their communication tries to defy the realities of power, age, and taboo while the world closes in around them. The audience will experience the production from the comfort of their own car, while the plot unravels live in the parking lot and projected on screens throughout.
Dialogue will be transmitted through FM radio stations that the audience can tune in.
