Spotlight on: Extended Play

 Extended Play is a Houston team that uses music to inspire it’s scenes and shows.  We asked them the following questions:


If your troupe were a comic or sci-fi team, what would be your universe?



What is your origin story?

We don’t know how we came to be in this group. We simply awoke to find ourselves onstage with fresh tattoos on our backs saying “Extended Play.” Likewise, with each performance, we find ourselves suddenly awake onstage, with no memories of the previous 48 hours. Just kidding : Station theater formed us as part of a house structure team. Every two months station experiments with a new form. They put together veteran players, to bring cutting-edge long form “structure” to Houston .


Do you have any troupe rituals to prepare for a show?

Our preshow ritual is lament configuration


What are you most looking forward to about this year’s festival?

We look forward to this festival to fill in the memory blanks from the last 48 hours…our universe consists of space and time travel through music?
