KIDS PLAY BY REESE THOMPSON
With Kids Play not-for-profit Recognize Theater uses the weARlive app to explore issues of gender and sexuality. Jenn, 13, wants two things from God: one, to be pretty, and two, for Andrea to be her BFF. When Andrea catches the attention of Jenn’s obnoxious step-brother, Derek, Jenn’s world is sent into a tailspin. Using the app’s face-sync technology, the older actors will appear on screen as pre-teens and seamlessly age over time to their mid-twenties, emphasizing the gap between our self-image and how the world sees us.
