…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.”
“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.”
