Money Lab Untitled Theater Company #61

About the show

Money Lab is an economic vaudeville, a multi-disciplinary experiment to discover whether economic ideas can be represented through performance. It uses a mixture of theater, dance, video, cabaret, opera, puppetry, clowning  and games in order to explore everything from the gold standard, to the 2008 stock market collapse, to the theories of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Arthur Laffer, and Elinor Ostrom, to the intersections of economics and art. Developed with the help of a crew of artists  and economists, every night is a new set of acts, set in a framework of economic games. In the framework, audience members will receive and trade blue and red tokens representing art and the necessities, whose values will fluctuate through the night depending on what happens onstage and how the audience uses the tokens. Every night, a changing slate of four acts will perform as well, each from a different artistic discipline and each examining economics in its own way.
