Ms. Connections, a non-verbal clown who suffers from loneliness and papers her walls with Yellow Pages pages to comfort herself, is reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and practicing proactivity so, she has moved her entire house to the Abrons Underground, hired entertainment, procured snacks, and engaged staff in order to properly and safely receive unknown guests.
You May Meet Her is an IRL RPG centered on a blind playdate with a socially anxious extrovert, her house & her hired help. An entirely immersive and interactive installation You May Meet Her is set with ≥ 60 action items that, once triggered, activate a response that may delight the guest in an experiment in choice, if/then scenarios, social contract, etiquette, unfamiliar embodied interactions, and surprises.
Ms. Connections will receive one guest and up to four voyeurs for 20 minute visits every half hour from 7-9:30pm, April 18 – 25. The Abrons Underground will admit ticket holders 10 minutes before their guest’s time to view the exterior house. Please do not be late.
You May Meet Her is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
