An ORIGINAL FICTION evolves into a Based on a True Story to destabilize the roles of an ensemble cast: the character, the actor, the fan, the author.
BOY’Dega: Edited 4 Syndication presents the dissolving of explicit boundaries, in a Baltimore populated by all those who verge on participation. This stylized forensic drama is tangled together in clusters, information gangs, each looking to steal and absorb more content for the benefit of its own authenticity and self preservation. Visitors will ultimately decide who deserves this honor. Each will have the opportunity to navigate a codified world constructed from original footage, character studies, backstory, lineage, and invented BOY’Dega fan communities: raging against the original with their own vision of the show. Discover spin-off images that capture the creators at nightclubs in wardrobe stolen from the set, geo-tagging, gossip, archaeological digs, breakfast in the street, sexy photo albums, murder, protest, stand up comedy, etc.—all formatted to extinguish isolation and create comfort for an inevitable trip to the grave.
Sam Lampton (theatre submission) Based on the actor who plays BOY’D in the mini-series, this theater production looks at Norris during the time of his homelessness. It depicts endurance yoga/headstands on top of a Coca-Cola bottle. Street handle is #Cheshire. An upside-down smile, a bottle, and a yoga mat make for a minimal production. The show’s twist happens at the end of the first act, when he slips into the bottle head first like a sailboat. He experiences a new reality and is surrounded by money. Will channeling Houdi set him free?

Victor Patrick (prop submission) The set is a merger of the 40/40 club and the staging for a film involving special effects. It is a greenscreen dream that has behind the scenes edge. It is at once a mirage and hologram then the forcefulness of realism—the present tense.
