La Jolla


Run time: 10 minutes

And Then You Wait production

In a perfect fallout shelter, there should be at least nine square feet of room per person. This is far from perfect. A community of survivors gather to wait for the world’s end or its rebirth. They teach, grieve, fall in love and remember. A meditation on hope and resilience in the face of uncertainty, And Then You Wait is an immersive audio installation in a grain silo that will get close and talk to you in the dark.

Lily Padilla, Dylan Key and John Burnett

Lily Padilla and Dylan Key make plays and gathering spaces for soulful interrogation and embodied celebration. Padilla is a playwright, performer and community builder who has developed work in New York City, New Orleans and San Diego, at venues such as the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, INTAR Theatre and the Lark. Key's directing work has been seen at Undermain Theatre, the Dallas Museum of Art, Kitchen Dog Theatre, and site-specific work throughout Dallas. John Burnett draws from a background in music composition, sound design, and technology, to create technologically-augmented, reactive installation and concert works that derive their materials from the present environment or synthesize entirely new virtual spaces. All three artists are pursuing advanced degrees at UC San Diego.
