Hidden Stories is a digital theatrical experience created in partnership with the USC Libraries. Pulling from the archives, a group of designers from the USC School of Dramatic Arts curated a collection of stories around USC’s community experiences of the pandemic.

This experience is an invitation to learn about the people in this community and an artistic exploration of theatre in the new age.

This multi-media web experience is a deconstruction of Karel Capek’s incredibly prophetic 1937 play The White Plague, about what happens when a global pandemic strikes the world, killing all in its path. Designed in a theoretical, immersive space set on the USC campus, the experience will be an exploration of the intersection of science and politics; and will ask questions about what it means to be a citizen – and a human being – in a world that is torn apart.
