The Cultch Presents

New Age Attitudes:
Live in Concert

A concert in construction paper form.

MAY 11–14
Historic Theatre

Theatre Replacement (Vancouver)
Created and Performed by Amanda Sum

New Age Attitudes: Live in Concert is part pop-up book, part performance. Theatre-maker and musician Amanda Sum de-digitizes her identity-drenched indie-pop album into a handmade book. Each audience member is given a personalized book to silently read together. Filled with sonic descriptions and humorous invitations, the pop-up book guides audience members through a new way of listening and receiving.

New Age Attitudes: Live in Concert is neither a musical nor a straight concert. Shifting the traditional structure of a music concert by using collective reading as a backbone, this lo-fi performance prioritizes introvertedness and celebrates awkwardness. Amanda rearranges her debut album, New Age Attitudes, to craft a new narrative that demands your gentle devotion.
