Pile Up is an immersive performance involving a room full of cars which the audience can enter to experience unique stories of personal intersection. Each car will feature a cinematic soundscape that bridges the gap between audience and performer. Visitors enter a vehicle wearing a personal audio device which narrates the experience based on the point of view of a particular character. While some cars have room for multiple passengers others will only accept one at a time. Imagine entering a car with a lonesome trucker, a mother driving her daughter to school, a senior citizen taking their driving test or a couple on a date in the Hollywood hills. Each visitor embodies a character within a pre-determined narrative but is encouraged to interact with the other visitors in the car through audio cues and suggestions. Think of it as augmented or virtual reality for the ears.
