Leveling Up

PRESENTED WITH North Hennepin Community College

Designs by Søren: Direction, Technical Director, Lighting Design, Sound Design, Scenic Design

Brooklyn Park — Twin Cities MN

Three twenty-something roommates are glued to their video games. They are masters of the virtual worlds behind the computer screens in their Las Vegas basement. When one of them uses his gaming skills to land a job with the National Security Agency launching actual drones and missiles, online battles begin to have real consequences. Leveling Up is a fresh, contemporary look at how we navigate the blurry line between worlds both virtual and real and what it means to grow up.
