Alley Theater to Bring Remote Houston Live Art Experience to East End Cultural District

Alley Theater to Bring Remote Houston Live Art Experience to East End Cultural District

Houston’s Alley Theatre presents Remote Houston, a participatory, pedestrian-based live theatre experience where groups of 50 individuals meet and discover the city of Houston from a new remote perspective.

Participants will be lead on a journey across the city that alters perceptions of familiar landscapes, unifies the group and conjures up personal memories. Armed with only a set of headphones, a computer generated synthetic voice guides each participant through downtown Houston, allowing them to craft their own interpretation and unique story of the sights, music and surrounding environments they encounter.

The Remote Houston journey begins at the Evergreen Cemetery in East End Houston. The performance reveals a “secret Houston,” continuing to places normally unseen, places where humans encounter their limits, places where crowds gather, Houston’s underground tunnel system, back alleyways, dark hallways, unseen areas of Houston, and common areas seen through a new lens. At times the group is given tasks—take the Metrorail, participate in or view the city through special binoculars. The experience will conclude in the Houston Theater District.

PERFORMANCES: Performances are Wednesdays and Fridays from April 12 through May 13 at 4:00 p.m. and performances last approximately two hours.

TICKETS: Tickets to Remote Houston are now on sale for $39. Tickets for groups of 10+ are available for $25 each and may be reserved by calling 713.315.3346. Student tickets are available with valid I.D for $16. Tickets can be ordered online (alleytheatre.org) or by phone (713.220.5700).
