Scene in an Emory parking deck
By Kim Urquhart
The views of the Atlanta skyline and Emory campus from the top of the Michael Street Parking Deck set the stage for Fish & Bicycle Theater’s performance of “The Adventures of Jesitha and Andronikis: The Search for Love!”
The show begins just below the sixth level of the parking deck. A guide leads the audience from scene to scene in a loop around the deck.
“We really wanted to take the audience on an adventure and make it an immersive experience for everybody,” says Nathan Green ’08C, who directed the epic adventure tale that attracted about 250 spectators during its June run. “We’re about telling a good story and having a good time.”
This is the second such show presented by co-founder Green’s fledgling theater company. “We’re into creating traveling spectacles that are environmentally staged,” he says. Green, a Theater Studies major who graduated from Emory in May, will soon serve as a directing intern at the Actors Theatre of Louisville.
