Event Series Event Series: poolboy: don’t pick up

poolboy: don’t pick up

March 22 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“poolboy: don’t pick up” is a queer immersive party and performance about submissiveness, friendship, and failure. Your computer is whitehot in your lap. What happens next is entirely in your control.

poolboy is trying to write a murder mystery. His best friend, momgrab (artist Julia Mounsey), is ghosting him. To avoid writing, poolboy will do anything you say. Anything. “don’t pick up” seems simple, an excavation of 20 years of writing: from School of Rock fanfic to failed plays to abandoned journals. The audience freely interrupts with questions, new conversation topics, or by giving poolboy tasks to complete on the spot. Reality and fiction intertwine. All is not what it seems. “poolboy: don’t pick up” is pure chaos: a participatory, living, white-knuckle document of poolboy’s very real life.

This project is supported in part by the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
