Theater Grottesco North America, Inc.

THE SURVEY: Santa Fe for Art's Sake


THE SURVEY, an artwork in itself, utilizes the internet to encourage global participation. Questions and resulting answers will be used for the creation of theatrical “experiences” and gallery exhibitions in Santa Fe, showcasing under the radar outdoor and indoor Santa Fe venues and locations. Compilation videos of the performances and exhibits will be presented online globally. The art created in this project will be inclusive, thought provoking and full of surprise.

TG, Burning Books, and Axle Contemporary will create a survey and share it online globally. Answers to the survey will serve as prompts for the content of a theatrical performance and a gallery showing of artworks which will present the survey results and serve as a theatrical backdrop for the production. The performance will take the form of presenting the survey questions and results, but on a subtle level, will follow a dramatic arc which causes audience reflection, self-assessment, and transformation. The theatrical performance and the gallery exhibition at the Axle mobile artspace will be presented at multiple Santa Fe locations from the Railyard/Farmers Market to the Santa Fe Ski Basin. All performances will be videotaped and edited into an online screened performance.
