Among Us—UCLA is an audio-theater experience that navigates participants throughout the UCLA campus, while inviting active observation, quiet contemplation and self-revelation to explore the tension between our desire to belong and our desire to be free. The audience members are the actors and UCLA is the stage. Marike Splint is a theater maker from the Netherlands based in L.A. who specializes in creating work in public spaces that explores the relationship between people, places and identity. Among Us—UCLA is an audio-theater experience that navigates participants throughout the UCLA campus, while inviting active observation,

quiet contemplation and self-revelation to explore the tension between our desire to belong and our desire to be free.

The audience members are the protagonists and UCLA is the stage. A voice heard through headphones prompts the spectators to consider how they relate to the strangers on the streets and what they can imagine about their lives. The experience culminates in a game of choice and affiliation that gradually illuminates the hidden social structures that define us.

Limited to 30 people per performance. Please note this performance involves walking about 1 mile through public space. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, and bring water, a hat and/or sunscreen. Please contact the box office if you require any special assistance with regards to mobility.
