O Monsters Screening
New Paradise Laboratories
$7 – $10
The Proscenium Theatre at the DrakeMap
Catch up on the whole story of the Kissimmee family in Hello Blackout! by attending the O Monsters film screenings. Hello Blackout! occurs in a very distant past, while O Monsters occurs in a strange alternative present time.
A monster without knowing it.
In a mansion made of numbers lives the Kissimmee family, far from the concerns of those who lead normal, non-mathematical lives. The Kissimmee triplets live under the watchful eye of Moth – perhaps their mother, perhaps something else. Moth rules the household using an arcane poem, an equation that prevents the house from collapsing on top of them. They are monsters who don’t know they are monstrous. Mutation sneaks up on them.

Their work values sudden inspiration, paradigm shifts, and shocks to the system. The collaborative environment of NPL’s working process influences the content of their shows. The company supports an artist-as-entrepreneur model in its organizational structure and tend to be multidisciplinary in their interests: designers, writers, and producers, as well as actors.
