ABERDEEN w/ TINY GIGANTIC

Dreaming up new ways of performing and telling stories. 
A show in two acts. The first act, TINY GIGANTIC,  features premiere mixed media story performances from LAUREN WEEDMAN, B. FRAYN MASTERS, JOEY SLAMON and ANIS MOJGANI. The second act, ABERDEEN, is a solo live music, film, and storytelling performance from MATT SHEEHY. 

ABOUT TINY GIGANTIC: Redefining what a storytelling performance can be through the addition of video, live music, and other audio/visual elements to help create entertaining and interactive pieces born out of real-life narratives. Featuring premiere performances by LAUREN WEEDMAN (Doris on HBO's Looking), B. FRAYN MASTERS (Host, Sketch Comedy, Video Maker),  JOEY SLAMON (Writer/Producer, Arrested Development, I'm Sorry) and ANIS MOJGANI (Winner International Poetry Cup Slam, Performed in both the House of Blues and United Nations). 

ABOUT ABERDEEN : In 2008, Matt Sheehy (Lost Lander, EL VY) took a job as a forester in the rainy and iconic logging town of Aberdeen, Washington. His new home - a remote and run-down cabin in the woods - was supposed to be the perfect place to reflect and write songs about a recent breakup and the devastating loss of his mother. But things have a way of taking unexpected turns in Aberdeen and it would take almost a decade for those songs, and the stories behind them, to be heard.

The story of Matt's time in Aberdeen unfolds via a one-person performance that is part rock concert, part podcast and part Stranger Things with live-action and animated projections by Stefan Nadelman (Montague of Heck, Zen Diaries of Gary Shandling). Matt recalls his attempt to restart his life, record an album, and his entanglements with the Floods, an eccentric local family living near his isolated cabin in the woods. Casey, the family’s young mother, is a logger and the family’s primary breadwinner. Her husband, Andy Flood (or “Flood” as he prefers to be called), is obsessed with proving his worthiness despite his fragile disposition and increasing paranoia about mysterious events occurring in Aberdeen. Matt's efforts to help the couple reveal terrible hidden motives and lead to discoveries about the nature of the multiverse.
