PLAY/DATEan immersive theatrical nightclub experienceat Fat Baby112 Rivington Streetbetween Essex and Ludlow on the Lower East SideNew York, NY 10002Near the F, M & J Trains at Essex/Delancey

Love at first sight, blind dates, late night hook-ups, and ugly breaks-ups unfold in this one-of-a-kind theatrical performance comprised of short plays inspired by the New York dating scene. Cruise the characters and grab drinks as you choose what to watch and which summer fling (or shitshow) to follow. 

Play/Date is an immersive and voyeuristic theatrical experience set throughout the four levels of Fat Baby, a nightclub and lounge on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. During the performance, the lines between reality and fiction are blurred, allowing guests to view and experience the “show” as it emerges in unlikely ways from unexpected directions. After admission, guests can move around the bar, lounge and balcony - following scenes as they move or proceeding from one scene to the next. DJs perform nightly following the performance.

APPLICATION PROCESS
Include one paragraph explaining why you are interested in attending the workshop and one paragraph describing the kind of work that you make. Briefly tell us about your level of expertise with computers. Please include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
Applicants must have a basic understanding of using a computer, i.e., opening and saving files, copying and pasting information, basic navigational skills, etc. Applicants must also have gone through the Isadora® Tutorials 1-6 before the workshop begins.

 Send applications to James@3ld.org with ISADORA® WORKSHOP in the subject line.
A Note About the Selection Process: Please know that, beyond your application information, an important factor in choosing the participants is how the group fits together as a whole. When the skills of those participating vary too widely, it means that someone ends up either bored or overwhelmed. So please understand that if you are not chosen it is not a reflection on your abilities or your skills as an artist. Participants will be chosen with a median skill level in mind and the limited number of seats available.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
Computers: We require that you bring your own Mac or PC laptop.
Macintosh Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 2.0 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Mac OS X 10.4.0 or greater; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime. (G4/G5 computers will work, but they do not perform nearly as well as the Intel machines.)
Windows Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 1.8 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Windows 7, Vista or XP; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime.
Video Camera: Some means of capturing live video is required.
The best option is a Digital Video Camera: Video (DV) camera with a FireWire output. (Make sure you have the required cable to connect it to your computer.)
A second option is to purchase a composite video-to-USB adapter like the Daystar Technology XLR8 Interview (Mac) or the Pinnacle Dazzle DVC-100 (Windows).
A third option is to use a web cam, either an external USB model or the one that is built-in to your laptop; this latter option offers the least flexibility however.
Microphone: For those whose computers do not have an integrated internal microphone, an external microphone compatible with the microphone input of your computer is also recommended.
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Sensory Systems: Users may also bring MIDI input devices or other sensory systems if they have prior skill in connecting and using those systems with their computer. Isadora can receive input from MIDI and Serial devices as well as software that supports the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol.
ENCOURAGED DIVERSITY
3LD especially encourages artists and arts enthusiasts from diverse backgrounds to apply to the workshop. We are interested in facilitating the exchange of ideas amongst populations traditionally underserved within the interactive technology community. All races and ethnicities, and personal abilities are welcome as are performers and non-performers.

DEEPEST MAN
A 3LD 3D + Production
Executive Producer: Kevin Cunningham
The world premiere of DEEPEST MAN  will begin performances May 22, 2014 and continue through June 14, 2014.
at: 3LD Art + Technology Center
80 Greenwich Street, NYC, NY
Tickets  $20.00 / www.ovationtix.com
Info: www.deepestman.com

DEEPEST MAN is a dark, new-age-science, multimedia theatrical production. It delves into the controversial and amazing properties of water:
"Water has consciousness"
"Water has memory"
Searching for release from his great grief, the lead character discovers the alluring comfort of an extreme sport, freediving. He ultimately finds solace through an intimate relationship with a famous television talk show host. He believes she speaks directly to him, through his television.
Dogma versus delusion, science versus metaphysics, disaster capitalists versus survivors, DEEPEST MAN weaves a complex narrative flowing from the mind of a man teetering on the edge.
DEEPEST MAN is written by award winning playwright James Scruggs, and  directed by Mark Rayment of London’s West End. Featuring actors, Spencer Barros, Vienna Carroll, Alva Chinn, Miguel Reis and Libby Skala. 
Video Design by Grant McDonald, Sound Design by JoEllen Dolan and Kevin DeYoe, Set Design by David Ogle, Lighting Design by Ayumu (Poe) Saegusa , Costume Design by Stephanie Levin, Assistant Set Design by Justin Swader and Christopher Swader. Production Manager Cate DiGirolamo, Stage Manager Beth Stegman.
Known for producing large scale, original experimental work, 3LD has commissioned DEEPEST MAN, and funded development residencies, as well as pre-production location shoots to gather video assets to be used in the show.
3LD’s groundbreaking use of Musion’s 3D Holographic Projection System, will give our designers previously unavailable storytelling options.
3LD does things that very few theatre companies today are able to do.  We have made a commitment to artists on the cutting edge of new performance: we give these individuals the opportunity to experiment in true laboratory form with their collaborators, our team, and our technology, serving over 700+ independent artists a year and paying them for their work.
Having access to all of this incredible technology will be expensive. With rehearsals about to begin, we urgently need your financial support to secure the essential elements and artists needed in this production.
So now we have an incredible story, unparalleled footage, some awesome and unique storytelling tools… but we need your help.  
What We Need 
We are asking for your donations in order to bring this work to the stage. You can play a major role in creating an original and unique piece of theater.Every donation helps. Every cent of your contribution will find its way to the stage.
Your donation will help pay the Deepest Man team, the designers, cast, and crew;    a stellar company of brilliant artists.

APPLICATION PROCESS
Include one paragraph explaining why you are interested in attending the workshop and one paragraph describing the kind of work that you make. Briefly tell us about your level of expertise with computers. Please include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
Applicants must have a basic understanding of using a computer, i.e., opening and saving files, copying and pasting information, basic navigational skills, etc. Applicants must also have gone through the Isadora® Tutorials 1-6 before the workshop begins.

 Send applications to James@3ld.org with ISADORA® WORKSHOP in the subject line.
A Note About the Selection Process: Please know that, beyond your application information, an important factor in choosing the participants is how the group fits together as a whole. When the skills of those participating vary too widely, it means that someone ends up either bored or overwhelmed. So please understand that if you are not chosen it is not a reflection on your abilities or your skills as an artist. Participants will be chosen with a median skill level in mind and the limited number of seats available.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
Computers: We require that you bring your own Mac or PC laptop.
Macintosh Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 2.0 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Mac OS X 10.4.0 or greater; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime. (G4/G5 computers will work, but they do not perform nearly as well as the Intel machines.)
Windows Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 1.8 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Windows 7, Vista or XP; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime.
Video Camera: Some means of capturing live video is required.
The best option is a Digital Video Camera: Video (DV) camera with a FireWire output. (Make sure you have the required cable to connect it to your computer.)
A second option is to purchase a composite video-to-USB adapter like the Daystar Technology XLR8 Interview (Mac) or the Pinnacle Dazzle DVC-100 (Windows).
A third option is to use a web cam, either an external USB model or the one that is built-in to your laptop; this latter option offers the least flexibility however.
Microphone: For those whose computers do not have an integrated internal microphone, an external microphone compatible with the microphone input of your computer is also recommended.
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Sensory Systems: Users may also bring MIDI input devices or other sensory systems if they have prior skill in connecting and using those systems with their computer. Isadora can receive input from MIDI and Serial devices as well as software that supports the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol.
ENCOURAGED DIVERSITY
3LD especially encourages artists and arts enthusiasts from diverse backgrounds to apply to the workshop. We are interested in facilitating the exchange of ideas amongst populations traditionally underserved within the interactive technology community. All races and ethnicities, and personal abilities are welcome as are performers and non-performers. Artists, arts administrators, producers, designers and curious individuals in general that meet the basic requirements for application and complete the online six-part tutorial are welcome here.
