“Since 1760, they’ve operated in secret, preparing the way. Once considered legend, they’ve been steadily growing in number and influence. Their existence, in direct response to a pressing need expressed by the natural world, is one of the most significant and far-reaching stories in America: a story of un-natural selection. A story of extinction. The actions of humanity have set into motion events that will outlive our species. It must now be determined what will endure. Do you know how you got here? Do you know where you’re going? Our past is a memory, our future is certain. DODO: the time has come.”
Brought to you by Bricolage, this immersive theatrical adventure is created in collaboration with Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh as part of its Carnegie Nexus initiative. Designed to alter how modern audiences interact with cultural institutions, this heavily sensory-based and intimate piece will take place at Carnegie Museums’ historic Oakland facility. Embark on a personalized experience at the intersections of art and science, exploring public spaces in new ways and navigating behind-the-scenes areas normally off limits to traditional museum visitors.

After booking your tickets, you will be given specific instructions for your arrival and it is important that you follow them and share them with others in your party. While your safety is our utmost concern, we require that you read and sign this release before your experience begins. You will be provided a copy of this release upon arrival at check-in.
Bricolage is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all patrons and we endeavor to have transparency with all our programs that may present specific challenges. We want you to know that this production may be difficult for patrons with mobility issues, as it requires audiences to move up and down stairs, and through uneven terrain. For those patrons, we offer a wheelchair accessible path, as well as a wheelchair for those who do not have one but would prefer to utilize one. Bricolage also provides accommodations such as audio description through its immersive companion program. We encourage you to communicate any specific ways we might help you better enjoy your experience by giving us a call at 412.471.0999 or emailing Fred at firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks in advance of your desired attendance date (if possible) so that we can design an accommodation unique to your needs.

The museums look forward to working with Bricolage to develop an immersive production that has the potential to set a new standard for participative experiences in the theater and museum fields. We believe the project has much to teach us, and, most importantly, great potential benefits for the audiences for who will join us on this journey.– Jo Ellen Parker, president of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh
