Cucumber Dogs, in association with Sitting Shotgun, invite the Fringe audience to witness a miraculous birth of a theater piece and even contribute to its creation in their interactive TBD: The Live Devising Project. Known as "devised theater," the format engages the audience members in sharing their experiences on a particular topic. Those stories later become an inspiration for the brand-new piece created on the spot by the cast. Every show is different and nobody knows what’s to come. The ensemble creates three mini-shows in the span of one performance. The process consists of three phases: gathering source material from the audience, ideating with the team, and creating a story. Each part is timed, making TBD a very dynamic experience and adding an additional layer of suspense: will the company stand up to the challenge?
