This summer, Bedlam Theatre and Live Action Set have joined forces to create a performative exploration through the architecture and hidden treasures of Saint Paul’s Lowertown neighborhood, The Big Lowdown: a Bedlam//Live Action Set Roving, Lowertown, Adventure from August 23rd-25th.

Directed by Noah Bremer, the performance begins in the bustling hall of the newly renovated Saint Paul Union Depot where you, the audience member, are sorted into a group and set out for a guided adventure through activated landscapes in Lowertown. During the journey, you will encounter short pieces set against concrete walls, along green parks, smooshed in alleyways, stairwells, elevators, skyways, and huddled below underpasses. It’s an unique adventure with every footstep!

Featuring the creative leadership of: Katia Cardenas, Becky Dale, Alana Horton, Barry Madore, Maria McNamara, Evie Mouacheupao, Fidelis Odozi, Tyler Olsen, Audrey Yauhjin Park, Mohamed Samatar, Chue Vang, Katie Ka Vang, Billy Xiong, John Bueche, and Michael Sommers.

PREVIEW performance:

We’re excited to see how this all works with an audience! Come play the audience on Wednesday, August 21st! Arrive at the Waiting Room of the Union Depot at 7:30; the Preview will start at 8pm sharp.

The Preview will be just like the performance, only newer and fresher. We might pause to adjust a light or back up and repeat a moment to get it right. We’d love to have as big a crowd as possible, both ’cause big crowds are fun AND because we’ll be doing extra photo documentation during the preview (so wear your favorite shirt!). Your reservation helps us plan, so click this link, thanks. $5 Tickets, with $3 and $0 options if needs be. Bring ten friends.

 This project is made possible, in part, through a grant from the Network of Ensemble Theater’s Touring & Exchange Network (NET/TEN), supported by lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Arts Access grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
