Get ready for an immersive experience unlike any other attempted, Copious Love in collaboration with the Academy of Interactive Entertainment present a show from the future. In a 3D world, she only needs two dimensions: Kick and Ass.
In the post-apocalypse, a war rages between the last human survivors and the malformed technomancing Witches. Witch Hunters are skilled warriors that hunt and kill these super powered enemies. They are trained in the ways of analog combat. They have no names, their entire identities exist within their personal code. CODENAME: KANSAS is the most accomplished amongst them but she soon learns there’s more to her than just her code and arms.
Transported into the far future, (the post-post-apocalypse) by a pair of time traveling red combat boots, Kansas meets Glenada, a “Good Witch” out to restore order and balance to the last human settlement. To do so, she must recover the sentient A.I. program called OZ, which has been guiding humanity through its darkest days long after Kansas’ time and is the credited architect of the last surviving civilization. Kansas is sent on a mission to recover the AI from Glenada’s enemy, the Witch of the West. But Kansas knows when she’s being used as a pawn in someone else’s power play. Keeping her sword arm flexed and her trigger finger nice and itchy, Kansas sets off to get her ticket home and along the way finds a mystery to unravel which will show that she is far more than just the history’s greatest Witch Hunter.
Join Copious Love Productions as we present CODENAME: KANSAS at the brand new 12th Ave Arts studio in a fully immersive audio visual experience using a set made entirely of digital projection and taking our audience inside the world of OZ like nothing that has been seen before in live theatre. The future holds unexpected environments, innovations in artificial intelligence and of course the weaponry to defeat it!
OPENING THIS HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!
Written by Dick Phillips & Brendan Barr | Directed by L. Nicol Cabe
12th Ave Arts is on Capitol Hill in Seattle on 12th Avenue in between Pine and Olive
on 12th ave. It is right next to Rachel’s Ginger Beer & has a bright new sign all lit up out front!
PARKING Let’s face it, we’re in Capitol Hill and parking sucks. Be sure to allow extra time to find a spot! We highly recommend carpooling, busing or taking your bike up to the venue as Capitol Hill can be a very busy part of town on the weekends. REMINDER! Street parking is metered until 8pm every day except Sunday! Make sure you pay up until 8pm or you will risk getting a ticket or worse. WE RECOMMEND: The Parkopedia app for your smartphone and also the Seattle Central Community College parking lot often has all day $5 parking – located on Harvard Ave at E Pine Street (map)
CAPITOL HILL is one of Seattle’s best neighborhoods. This community hosts some of the best restaurants, bars, and clubs that our city has to offer. Vibrant and continuously bustling, this is a great spot to make your theatre date complete!
