So The Maze is finally here. Trouble has been working for several months to build a gigantic maze inside Brooklyn DIY venue Secret Project Robot and gather a huge amount of incredible performers to do their thing somewhere in its midst – literally: audience members will have to find the show before they can watch it. Performances will take place every Thursday, Friday, and sometimes Saturday between July 12 and August 4, and there will be art exhibitions from fun übercreatives like Babycastles, and something called a “Remote Control Tomato”. Sounds great! Of course the team is still trying to raise money to help pay for the project, in both here and in the future in Berlin. If you are going to go, why not buy a ticket in advance through their Kickstarter, which conveniently finishes right around the same time as the opening of the show? The team has a matching grant of up to $5,000, so once they reach $10,000, they've hit the goal, and considering that the tickets are the same price ($10), you might as well secure your own entry along with their future.

If you don't live in NYC, or you wanna kick down $5 more, you can get a copy of a cool limited edition Words + Dreams compilation tape, made up completely of artists performing in the Maze, like this cool track “Mini Maxell” by Black Jeans, which we have on an exclusive preview for you today. Check out the full schedule below, including some new additions like Xeno & Oaklander, and Hubble. The Maze is going to be an incredible experience, and stay tuned for Impose for more coverage.

“Interface Accolade”
an interactive sculpture centered around the ideas of interface and reactionary experience. Its two central consols promote the interweaving of the viewer and the space through its activation. This responsive piece becomes an improvisational tool within which the participants can experience a creation and transformation within the space. Hand-controlled glove-boxes, lighting, sequencing.
