This is not your regular theater production. Torn Space Theater is producing live-action performances called "Stations" where the audience is taken on a ride of emotions. 

"We put a lot of emphasis on working with different sound artists, light artisits, to kind of create a worldly experience," Dan Shanahan, the artistic director for Torn Space Theater, said. "We hope that is what the audience will connect with most on a visceral level." 

Silo City has been the host to the summer plays for six years now. New this year, is a VIP experience where people can go on a boat tour on the Buffalo River. The main purpose of the play is to experience art in a more interactive and emotional way. 

"Film is important in how it has influenced our creation of image but the liveliness of space and people and lights and sounds," Melissa Meola, the associate director for Torn Space Theater said. 

There are still three more shows left this summer, August 17th, 18th, 19th at 8pm at Silo City. Tickets can be found on their website.
