The New York Times interview

After the show, I spoke with Ava Lee Scott, its writer-director, about the appeal of this fluid and interactive 19th-century performance style. “It comes down to a longing for human contact,” she said. “Today, everything is dehumanized by technology. We miss the intimacy of the Gilded Age — a handwritten letter, flowers at the door, giving a lock of hair, looking into someone’s eyes, feeling a human touch. There is a void today, and people want connections. We want storytelling and poetry in our lives.”

“…not-to-be-missed World Premiere of the immersive and intimate art performance from Ava Lee Scott”

“It comes down to a longing for human contact…

…Today, everything is dehumanized by technology. We miss the intimacy of the Gilded Age — a handwritten letter, flowers at the door, giving a lock of hair, looking into someone’s eyes, feeling a human touch.

There is a void today, and people want connections. We want storytelling and poetry in our lives.”

She has a gift. She IS a gift, and one that hundreds and hundreds of people have been blessed to open and be opened by.”

I was absolutely floored by Ava Lee Scott’s work in “Home of Enchantments.”

It’s a one-on-one experience where Scott plays a character named Belle, a spiritually gifted yet troubled individual who calls upon you to help her through an especially dark, trying situation.

It’s an extensive tale that requires a powerhouse performance from Scott that not only hits the beats of the story crafted, but also comes with interactive emotional elements that feel deeply personal. It’s a beautiful mix of making the participant feel vulnerable and on edge while also sending you on your way with a surprisingly full heart.

(And the fact that Scott conducted one of these shows after the next at Overlook is absolutely astounding.)”

“Creator Ava Lee Scott is exceedingly inventive; she’s taken the things most bothersome about immersive theatre and banished them from her work.”
