Help us transform Machine Project into a magical theater installation.

About this project

Help us transform Machine Project from its current state (dejected storefront full of leftover construction debris) into an astonishing (if slightly cramped) transdimensional hallway. We plan to build an installation in the form of an office hallway which will divide the storefront into separate rooms equipped with 19th century special effects. This new installation will serve as the theater set for the play See What Love The Father Has Given Us by Asher Hartman as well as several events responding to its unique parameters, including an immersive and interactive sound piece by Emily Lacy, a musical performance by Claire Cronin and a lecture about the Winchester Mystery House by Colin Dickey.

See What Love The Father Has Given Us is a religio-dramedy about three big box store employees who travel through tiers of reality taking on aspects of the Holy Trinity. Each performance will be limited to an intimate audience of twelve who'll be immersed in scenarios which may include: Professional Amateurism, Alien Ass Cannons, Non-Threatening Muzak, Exploited Volunteers and/or Interplanetary Love.

As with past performances we've done with Asher, we expect this show to sell out very quickly due to an extremely limited number of seats. Pledges of $40 or more will guarantee admission to the play before tickets are released to the general public. Show dates and times are available here:

All proceeds will go toward construction costs, programming expenses and funding for all the artists involved.
