Geometry Encompass Kommune Prodigi Lockdown Love
The outbreak of the Coronavirus has impacted the world of live events and experiential marketing resulting in the cancellation of multiple global events. During this pandemic, Geometry Encompass along with Kommune and Prodigi came together to curate first-ever virtual live play called ‘Lockdown Love’. Conceptualized by Roshan Abbas and directed by Sheena Khalid, Lockdown Love stars Shriya Pilgaonkar and Priyanshu Painyuli along with Tanmay Dhanania, Kira Narayanan, Ashwin Mushran and Sheena Khalid.
Lockdown Love is a (very) modern-day take on arranged romance- in the time of a pandemic. This funny, relevant and witty rendition of first dates will have love-seekers as Guy and Girl who together are every single man and woman at the center of this COVID-19 created online dating world! Through the 40 min live play, GUY and GIRL meet a series of specimens that will probably look uncomfortably familiar to refugees from this lockdown online dating world. Using their personal phone cameras, created profiles and little twists at the end of each date, the audience is sure to fall in love with these two and maybe even hope for a date with either.
Speaking about the play, Roshan Abbas, Managing Director, Geometry Encompass said, "These times call for an integration of creative forces and technology and the making mixed-media experiences. Lockdown Lovers is an attempt to win over a digital audience and engage them with a play that uses a strong tech backbone and a modified script. I hope this paves a way for creators and agencies to find a new way to share their art and win over their audiences."
From the absurd to the familiar, “Lockdown Love” follows a series of online first dates that couldn't get any worse - until they do. Lockdown Lovers is an adaptation of Jonathan Rand’s ‘Check Please.
The play is supporting the StayIN aLIVE foundation set up to help the gig economy worker in the performing arts space. Part proceeds will go to charity.
