    Biography of Physical Sensations

    "Rubber Repertory reduces life's mysteries down to essences."
    -Michael Barnes, Austin American-Statesman

    In their first new show since The Casket of Passing Fancy, Rubber Repertory pushes the limits of audience participation to even more fateful extremes. Each night, an audience of 40 will be given the chance to experience a human life through actual tastes, touches, smells, and sounds. This reinvention of the traditional biography forgoes narrative in favor of pure physical experience, placing audience members in the center of over a hundred pivotal moments of perception.

    Everyone who attends the show is invited to choose from seats of three different sizes. The size of your seat dictates the intensity of sensations you're willing to receive. Those in the smallest seats will receive low-intensity sensations--the smell of lavender and stale cigarettes, for instance--while those in the larger seats expose themselves to far livelier thrills.

    Once the show begins, it's a fast and feely ride through puberty and pork chops, gunshots and tetherball, party whistles and old pianos, tonsillectomies and lemon cake. In other words: life itself.
