What Is Remote Denver?
You may have seen the ads for Remote Denver. This production put on by Denver Center for the Performing Arts promises a surreal, immersion experience as you walk in a group through downtown Denver. It’s exactly that.
What Does that Mean?
Let’s just say you might do any of the following:
- Stage a play
- Jump from a train
- Hang in the clouds
- Waltz with strangers
- Mediate in a forest
- Jaywalk avenues
- Spy on guards
Or, you might not. It depends on your horde.
Let’s just say if you want to have fun, experience downtown in a different way, learn to ride the light rail, visit places you haven’t seen, and do it all with a group of strangers, Remote Denver is the experience for you.
How to Get Ready for Remote Denver
You don’t need much to enjoy Remote Denver. Here are a few suggestions.
- Be sure you have comfortable walking shoes. You’ll walk at least 3 miles.
- Bring water. See above!
- Be flexible.
- Be patient. There’s a bit of waiting, but you are entertained during the waits.
- Let go. The more you relax and enjoy the moment, the more you’ll get out of Remote Denver.
- Take public transit. You will end up about 1.5 miles from where you start. If you’ve driven, you’ll need to get back to your car. By the way, you start in Lincoln Park and end up at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
- Eat beforehand.
- Bring a camera (your cell phone is fine, but your cell phone will be off during Remote Denver.)
