Philadelphia’s own Applied Mechanics transfers its 2012 Fringe Festival piece Some Other Mettle to the Annenberg Center as part of its By Local Series.
The show is described as a choose-your-own-adventure theatrical experience where many scenes occur simultaneously and the audience can actually walk inside the performance space.
Some Other Mettle is the seventh installation-style theatre piece that Applied Mechanics has created. It’s the story of five stout-hearted underdogs from five different places of the world who unite to solve the puzzle of a mysterious prophecy.
Applied Mechanics explores the relationship between bodies and space and constantly challenges traditional theatre.
Performances take place on February 8 at 7:30 p.m. and February 9 at 7:30. Tickets range from $20-30 and can be purchases at AnnenbergCenter.org, by calling 215-898-3900 or in person at the Annenberg Center Box Office. For more information, check out the official site
