Promenade Albuquerque

 A Theatrical Journey

"I was listening to a person. They were saying things inside their head. It went like this:

I was swallowed by a bus one day… then the whole city changed… and so did I."

A story set in reality, passengers follow the characters from place to place and witness the very special moments of their lives and gain magical access to their thoughts.

In Promenade, the audience forms a group of riders on a transit bus which weaves its way along an eccentric route through streets and neighborhoods of the city. Scenes unfold on sidewalks and spaces along the way revealing unique aspects of daily life as lyrical stories emerge among the characters allowing us to witness the lives of extraordinarily everyday heros.  The sonic landscape is delivered to each audience member via individual headsets, and is live-mixed during the performance using music, snippets of interviews and voice, as well as ambient sounds of the city.

Promenade is an original theatre performance concept created by Stereo Akt of Budapest Hungary.  The performance was first presented in Budapest and then toured to major cities throughout Europe. In 2017, Promenade debuted in the US in Baltimore, MD in collaboration with Single Carrot Theater.

Promenade is re-imagined and devised as a unique performance specific to the city in which it is being presented, thus “Promenade: Albuquerque.

Come join us on our anti-tour of Albuquerque as the reality of the street and the poetry of fiction mix in a way that makes everyday life a privilege to see.

Seating is very limited!

“Each performance is developed in the city where it is,” Promenade's stage director explains. “There is no pre-formed script, it is very artist-driven.”
