As Arcade Amerikana prepares for its official opening at Industry City December 6, the creators offer up a taste of what to expect from the new immersive experience.
The show immerses its audience in a desert rehab retreat for the virtually addicted, all experienced within the Performance Cube—an interactive room of four projector screens stretching 40 feet long and 20 feet wide. The ever changing videoscapes are combined with live performance and a DJ mixing an original score.

Arcade Amerikana is performed by Emory Campbell, Quenton Stuckey, Simone Grossman, Aarron Ricks, Russell Kahn, Lio Mehiel, and Owen Campbell.
The new work is inspired by shows such as Sleep No More and Fuerza Bruta and created by the artistic collective Arcade.
Arcade Amerikana began performances at Industry City in Brooklyn December 4 and is scheduled to run through December 15. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
