On stage, a group of gamer/performers aged 11 to 46 enact different mother-son narratives—from the Beowulf saga, to Bambi, to The Terminator—using the video game Minecraft. Inspired by the real-life relationship between Theatre Replacement’s Co-artistic Director, Maiko Yamamoto, and her 11-year-old son, Hokuto, and his obsession with Minecraft. MINE is live-operated from start to finish, and opens us up to expansive new territories in an intergenerational performance that both interrogates and recognizes the role technology plays in our modern parent-child relationships.

It’s really a show that’s meant to be watched by adults and their tween, videogame-aged kids together. What we’ve found is that the youth understand the language of the show on another level, while the parents get it in quite a different way—often having to be educated by their kids.”—Maiko Yamamoto
