“This Sweaty City” is a two-pronged project composed of:
1) an 8-part live performance series and
2) 8 episodic podcasts
City’s plot is a magical realist story that follows Peter Demeter, a late-night experimental radio DJ, fathered by the god Pan, as he explores a water-laden city, eerily similar to our dear crescent, in which bicycles have personalities and bureaucratic offices operate on moving steamboats. Audiences will follow the sweaty city’s inhabitants through 12 episodes over three years. It is written by Will Bowling, Shannon Flaherty, and Chris Kaminstein.
