A conceptual process in progress
Beginning as Lucid Dream Lounge in an East Oakland loft, we conducted theatrical experiments to reinvent the more stagnant aspects of modern theater to create an interactive model of highly complex walkthrough experiences and audience participation. We produced 19 highly enjoyable interactive events that became the framework of a new model built in hopes of propelling theater into the next century.
LDL Inc., after finishing our run at The Palace Theater, is now available for show creation, live performance, event logistics and production. With a collective 30 years of experience in theater, film, and event production, we can support any type of event. Some of our clients have included, Burning Man Project, Beats Antique, Take 3 Presents, Reverend Billy and The Stop Shopping Choir, The International Black Womens Film Festival.
LDL, Inc. will have continued to push the boundaries of theater and technology. Using theater and human connection to create experiences for participants that allows them to play, and genuinely be engaged in a new world— gaining perspective, and taking that into the community at large.
LDL, Inc. co-inspires, entertains and challenges audiences with unique multidimensional experiences: through which we honor the power of interactive art as a catalyst for self empowerment and finding common ground.
It takes different types of people to make theater a reality
