I’LL SHOW YOU MINE, IF YOU SHOW ME YOURS: TATTOOS MEET LIVE ART
Co-Producers Kat Reynolds and Colleen Hammond Whitmore will debut the Los
Angeles premiere of their co-written play “TATS:theexperience” beginning July 24, 2015
at The Flight Theatre @ The Complex Hollywood. As a seductive and sexy play, TATS
literally is a live performing arts experience, complete with acting, dancing, shadow
puppetry, an original score, body art, and more. Be interviewed and see yourself on
stage! Tag your art on the Tattoo Wall. Enjoy a VIP swag bag. Participate in the
conversation and SHOW us YOURS!
Reynolds and Hammond-Whitmore explore the subject of tattoos with the same level of
artistic care and loving attention to detail as one would expect from a skilled tattoo artist.
Much as a body art specialist will indelibly etch their talent and skill into a person’s skin
for many decades to come, these artists intend to etch their skill into our minds and
Body art is not new, but this play’s treatment of it as theatrical fodder is entirely unique
and original. The play explores 16 characters (played by 7 actors) who have each
experienced tattoos in a variety of ways. Through the use of multiple theatrical mediums,
we learn their dramatic, tragic, and often humorous stories, and come to an
understanding of what makes body art such a complicated and uniquely human art form.
TATS audience members will have an immersive experience, beginning with an opening
night VIP Premiere Party created by FINCH Events. VIP packages are an option
throughout the run including swag bags, a Tattoo Wall, and an opportunity for an
onscreen interview, which may be broadcast on stage. All audience members are invited
and encouraged to blast social media pre and post show. Don’t be surprised if you end
up rubbing shoulders with local tattoo shop owners, piercing artists, and nude models.
The TATS tag line does not lie: I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours. Come see
and come play with us!
