NOTE: This is general admission and you will be seated on stage.

New Age Attitudes: Live in Concert is part pop-up book, part performance. Theatre-maker and musician Amanda Sum de-digitizes her identity-drenched indie-pop album into a handmade book. Each audience member is given a personalized book to silently read together. Filled with sonic descriptions and humorous invitations, the pop-up book guides audience members through a new way of listening and receiving. New Age Attitudes: Live in Concert is neither a musical nor a straight concert. Shifting the traditional structure of a music concert by using collective reading as a backbone, this lo-fi performance prioritizes introvertedness and celebrates awkwardness. Amanda rearranges her debut album, New Age Attitudes, to craft a new narrative that demands your gentle devotion.

Created, crafted and performed by Amanda Sum. Directed by Maiko Yamamoto, with installation design by Cindy Mochizuki, lighting design by Alexandra Caprara and technical stage management by Vee Pho. Produced by Theatre Replacement.
