By Wolf 359
Somewhere in an office building in Illinois, there is a woman whose job is to figure out how long you will live. And she's just gone on vacation.
temping, the strange and comic tale of an employee’s inner life, is performed for an audience of one by a Windows PC, a corporate phone, a laser printer, and the Microsoft Office Suite. Filling in at Sarah Jane's cubicle, you’ll update client records, send emails, and eavesdrop on intra-office romance. Each performance is unique, depending on which tasks you accomplish and which of your co-workers you decide to trust. Congratulations, you're the new temp! Get ready to work.
temping is the newest work by Wolf 359, a company of narrative technologists whose productions have been seen at Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub, the New York Film Festival, Berlin’s Voices of Change Festival, and Ars Nova, among others. Contrasting the anonymity of an Excel spreadsheet with furtive moments of human intimacy, temping brings you deep into the heart of corporate America. Congratulations, you’re the new temp! Get ready to work.
