The Electromagnetic Theater

The Electromagnetic Theater is a unique narrative experience for the age of podcasting, built on the tradition of American radio drama. We present newly commissioned short plays, performed by a company of first-call New York theater and voice actors, and brought to life in an immersive soundscape.

This piece is an attempt to dramatize these parallel experiences, each as crystalized by a photograph – the first taken at Ellis Island in 1905, the second in San Diego in 1989.

The Electromagnetic Theater, a contemporary radio drama company, produced the resulting plays for this installation.
