2021 Oregon Fringe Festival: Am I Busy Yet?, Malena Pennycook and Evangeline Cullingworth

Please have your camera on throughout the performance if possible, and leave yourself muted.
You may be called on to unmute, asked to speak/type in the chat, and be invited to participate in a variety of ways, including the use of space and objects. You can always say no, we’re prepared for that. To get the most out of this performance, you should join us from a quiet place that you feel comfortable moving around in with a stable internet connection. It’s best to join us from your laptop or hands-free device. The performance will be open 15 minutes before it starts so you can check your set up. If we have connection issues, we will pause the show to resolve them, so please stand by.

Am I Busy Yet? is an immersive and immediate video call play. By helping Gus cross off items on an increasingly gargantuan to-do list, the audience follows the protagonist on an investigation about the currency of busyness. Together, the audience will reorganize assumptions about work, time, and what happens when we’re forced to ask ourselves what we actually want to be doing.
