Wickenburg, Arizona

NEW PODCAST  3.14.2013 theater simple's Park Bench, WICKENBURG, ARIZONA Welcome to Wickenburg, Arizona, and the latest episode of park Bench.

Park Bench is theater simple’s, mobile interview outpost; a whimsical project with a serious agenda. We set up our 7ft tall rolling hill, then we ask folks to have a seat and consider a big idea, from a different perspective. Literally.

The week of january 28th, 2013, we set up shop in the high desert town of Wickenburg, Arizona, about 40 miles Northwest of Phoenix on the road to Las Vegas.

Over four chilly days, we asked folks to consider their town, the value of arts and culture, and their relationship to two local arts institutions, the Del Webb Center and The Desert Caballeros Western Museum We logged over 100 interviews, and have done our best to distill that into this podcast. Many, many thanks to everyone who shared their time.

That’s us just outside the Post Office, the Safeway, and the High School. Come on over and have a seat.

PARK BENCH is an interactive public art piece that often resembles a tiny park on a rolling hill, where we invite people to have a seat and have a chat from a slightly different perspective. We ask you to tell us your thoughts, and we’ll tell the world.  But…. COVID-19 has impacted our lives/work, too -  SO we adapt~

These are recorded phone calls and cellphone-recorded voice memos. You will hear differences in recording quality as we go, but hopefully you can still hear the CONVERSATION, and engage with that wherever you are.
