SHELTER (Winter 2021)

March 6, 2021

What if your home could speak?  This is the question at the center of Cal Poly’s original audio play, Shelter — an experimental theatrical experience that invites audience members to use their own personal listening devices to take a guided explorative journey of their own home. Streamed autobiographical stories, devised and written by Cal Poly students, will allow the audience to experience their own living space in a unique and compelling way.


SHELTER: An Immersive Theatrical Audio Experience in Your Living Space
This devised play will explore our current circumstance of “sheltering in place” by creating a theatrical piece that examines the emotional connection to our homes through an autobiographical lens. Shelter will be presented as an audio play.
