Participatory public projection

The Battle of Everyouth is a projection-based performance which blends live cinema, participatory theater, music and live animation. A miniature set, The Circarama, serves as a tiny stage for projections and stop motion animations, while wireless devices, S booth, D case, and P basket, offer ways to engage with live theater and contribute to the resulting projection panorama on the facade of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Students from Washburn High School are audience guides. This group has been studying youth and violence in their Art, Geography and Literature classes during the Spring, 2011 term. Their studies have included a mock United Nations session focusing on child soldiers, the reading of graphic novels Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and Maus by Art Spiegelman as well as discussions about artists that address controversies about borders, faith and security.
