Pang!

Actors: Christopher Rivas, Donna Simone Johnson, Natalie Camunas; Musician: Robert Een; Host: Dan Froot

This video demonstrates Pang!'s live radio play format. Here, a single mom and her ten children are swindled out of their home by a predatory lender. The actors voice multiple characters and create live sound effects, while being accompanied by live musicians. I invite you to close your eyes to get a sense of what the audio podcast version might be like (to launch in summer 2019).

This video demonstrates Pang!'s live radio play format. This is excerpt is from a play about a single mom, her elderly uncle, and her ten children being swindled out of their home. The actors voice multiple characters and create live sound effects, while being accompanied by live musicians. I invite you to close your eyes to get a sense of what the audio podcast version might be like (to launch in summer 2019). At a 1:03 is an example of “Foley pit” techniques we use. The video also shows how we use music to support dramatic action. As with all these work samples, I invite you to close your eyes to get a sense of what the podcast version might be like.

The video demonstrates how we do our best to treat serious topics with sensitivity and humor. It's also an example of non-linear narrative strategies we build upon. Here, the harrowing story of a Burundian refugee family is told by alternating between raw interviews and polished podcast segments. We invite you to close your eyes and listen on headphones, to get a sense of what the podcast version might be like.

This video demonstrates Pang!'s live radio play format, with actors voicing characters and creating a wide variety of live sound effects. Here, a Burundian refugee family tries unsuccessful to convey to a do-gooder journalist just how convoluted and difficult it can be to make a life as immigrants the U.S. This shows our intention to render nuanced real-life situations as theatrical storytelling. We invite you to close your eyes and listen on headphones, to get a sense of what the podcast version might be like.
