“A bellwether for 21st-century theater to come…meticulously executed.”
~ Steve Capra, New York Critic

“A theatrical roller-coaster of experiential drama…  Its unbelievable fun when you allow yourself to surrender to the world they create.”
~ Theater That Matters

“Wear comfortable shoes and don’t make post-show dinner reservations, as you have no idea where The Mortality Machine will take you.”
~ Theatre is Easy

“An experience full of mystery and surprises… take a trip to the lab with an open and adventurous mind and see what answers you can uncover.”
~ On Stage Blog

In 2014, five people died in an illegal medical experiment in a Canal Street basement. Before their families could learn what happened, the incident was covered up: buried under a mountain of legal procedures and sealed behind a web of police tape. No one knew how those five people came to participate in the experiment, or what they were doing; only that it cost them their lives. Some of their survivors moved on. Some fell apart. A handful kept fighting, and after five years, they’ve finally won the opportunity to unseal the laboratory, and learn what took their loved ones from them. When you enter the world of The Mortality Machine, you’ll take the role of one of those survivors, venturing into basement for the first time. And what you’ll find defies science and hope.

The Mortality Machine is an immersive theatre experience that combines live-action-roleplay and site-specific dance. Participants assume the roles of surviving family members of loved ones who died in a medical experiment, and must not only solve the mystery of their deaths, but confront their own attitudes about mortality and loss. No two experiences of The Mortality Machine will be the same.

The cast features Daan Bootsma, Isaac Conner, Julia Jurgilewicz, Elizabeth Law, Rita McCann, Kelsey Rondeau, Jessy Smith, Jennifer Suter, Rafael Svarin with Written Narrative by Ryan Hart, Design by Tommy Honton, Choreography by Lara Marcin, Sound Design by Sergey Kasich, Production Design by Orli Nativ, and Fabrication by Alex Young with Production Manager Jessica Cauttero, Technical Consultant Andy Gallardo, with Executive Producers Daniel Tan and Jason Knox.
