THE DEPARTMENT OF TELEVISION, RADIO, FILM AND THEATRE ADAPTS BEST SELLING AUTHOR DAVE EGGERS’ THE CIRCLE.
THE CIRCLE is a first-of-it's-kind endeavor that elaborates the world of Dave Eggers' novel into an explorable reality.
In our adaptation of THE CIRCLE, we invite each audience member to become the newest recruit of the world’s most powerful corporation. Using a uniquely developed application downloaded to each individual’s smartphone, you can navigate a completely transformed building while fighting for points to advance within the company. You can spy on other rooms via a live streaming feed, participate in the party outdoors featuring live music, or dive into the interactive world of The Circle unfolding in multiple simultaneous scenes with exclusive hidden content for those who know where to look.
THE CIRCLE employs immersive theatrical innovation in new and exciting ways; using innovative technology and gamification as tools to tell a story in ways never done before.
We ask that you enjoy this new type of theatre. Be bold and explore. Dare yourself to live within this world, and find new meaning in "The Circle."
THE CIRCLE will have 4 performance November 18, 19, 20, and 21, 2015, at 7 pm, in the University Theatre, 220 E. San Fernando, San Jose, CA. Tickets are $10-$20, and are available online at www.sjsu.edu/trft or the door.
THE CIRCLE is an immersive experience that allows you to explore the space on your very own. In order to have the most enjoyable evening, we recommend that you:
