GIRL AND BOY LAND 

A WORLD PREMIERE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

Produced by Boston Conservatory's New Ground Theatre Company, Girl and Boy Land premiered in Boston on April 27th, 2018.

Girl and Boy Land is a movement-based immersive experience written and conceptualized by Austin Iovanna. Concerned with dystopic idealogy, brainwashing, and the rigidity of the gender binary, the experience utilizes a structure inspired by the popular card game, "Mao". 

 

Audiences from the outside world are invited to enter into The Facility at Girl and Boy Land to find Subjects who have been coerced into a life of ruthless systematic oppression. They must learn to embrace "The Ideal" implemented by the Facility's Leader and enforced by Mother Superior and her team. Each Subject lives as a pawn - playing the very game they are trying to escape.

Explore, uncover, and follow at your own will. However, do not break the most important rule: Speech is prohibited and will be punished accordingly.
