Babies on the Street: The Show

(previously 'untitled gabbie project')

Co-created by Matthew Antoci and Hillary Gao

“We always do the best we can by the light we have to see by.” ― Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way
Matthew Antoci, Hillary Gao, and a chorus of five performers adapt 300+ Tik Toks inspired by one internet personality. An internet-fueled, Gertrude Stein-meets-Britney Spears meltdown. A destabilized fantasia about watching, perception, and the distortion of truth.

Press & Quotes:
"The Plasticity of Perception: “Babies on the Street: The Show” Brings Internet Drama to The Brick"
Interview by Andrew Agress in The Theatre Times

"The show was terrific. Also terrifying."
"Obviously technology was a huge part of it...but I felt like it was so disorientingly vulnerable and human."
