Reorbit

Reorbit is a social media theater experiment, re-animating literary and historical characters. Writing over Twitter, our first cast included one dead rock star, a tragic literary figure, a grand eccentric and a Russian cat.

Jack Kerouac retreated into rural Quebec, but engaged in real-life dialogue with the writer's living friends, elder artists in their eighties, one of whom wrote music. Walter Benjamin / Fantomas enacted key scenes in real life. Keith Moon thrashed. Hemingway answered an advice column. Sylvia Plath won our hearts.
