Technology in Superheroes Don't Give a Shit!

Tech Stuff in Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit!

I’ve decided to write up the technical aspects of Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit!, as documentation of the project, and for the enjoyment of my geekier friends. I hope that the performance came across as very audience-centric and performer-driven rather than relying on the spectacle of technical tricks to make it work. That being said, the setup was reasonably complex for a small black box theatre, and it’s interesting for me to discuss how it was done.
