The Attendants is an interactive performance installation. The dominant set piece is an eight-foot, transparent plexiglass cube. Two performers move inside it, and a recording of a conversation about making theatre is heard. People can communicate with the performers by texting to them with their cell phones. The messages appear on two plasma screens that surround the cube.
