Transition is a multimedia comedic theater piece about the transitory nature of consciousness and culture. A spoof on American short attention spans, Transition uses text, interactive and recorded video, sound loops, choreography and BMX bike stunts to throw the viewer off guard. Inspired in part by Guy Debord and the Situationist movement, Smith and Watts’s goal is to allow audiences to become immersed and ultimately comforted by the constantly altering nature of the piece.
