Sunday’s Pick: Deus Ex Machina

The newest show at the Long Center (701 W. Riverside Dr) calls itself “part real world video game, part Tarantino revenge flick.” If you’re not convinced yet, read on.

Deus Ex Machina is a live performance that gives the audience control of the storyline. The characters have been lifted from Greek mythology and dropped into a gladiator ring – their fate left to an audience empowered by Zeus himself. Through digital interaction, this malleable play lets the audience alter the narrative, allowing for 12,288 possible experiences. Unfortunately, we will only see 13 of them play out on the Long Center stage.

The play is written, produced, and directed by Liz Fisher, who has been working in Austin’s theater industry for 11 years.

Sundays show begins at 5 p.m. Ticket prices start at $24.
