BWW Review: #TXTSHOW (ON THE INTERNET) at Philly Fringe is the Next Show You'll be Texting About

Ever wonder if you could write a play? Ever think you could create interesting dialogue out of thin air? #txtshow (on the internet), created by performing artist Brian Feldman, gives the audience that exact opportunity: to be a part of the creation of the show.

#txtshow (on the internet) is a completely immersive multiscreen performance featuring a mysterious character named txt (pronounced “text”) who recites a script written anonymously in real-time by a live audience (on the internet). It is an interactive, experimental and experiential performance for the audience. There is no script for Feldman’s piece, rather, the audience sends private messages in Zoom to the artist’s phone which he reads in real time and performs in an attempt to assemble some meaning though the words are directly from the audience.

The project, created and performed by Brian Feldman (24 Minute Embrace, Dishwasher, Wawa Shabbawa),unlike most theatre productions where proper decorum dictates the audience stay still and silent, encourages participation and actually requires audience members to keep their video and mic on during the performance.

Brian Feldman is an award-winning artist and actor known for his extreme feats in his performance art. He lives in the Washington D.C. area and his work has been favorably compared to Marina Abramović, David Blaine, John Cage, Christo, Marcel Duchamp, Tehching Hsieh, and Andy Kaufman, and featured on television, radio, in print, and online. Since August 2003, he has presented 300+ performances of 125+ projects at 175+ venues and festivals in cities worldwide through Brian Feldman Projects, one of North America’s premier presenters of experimental time-based art.

Feldman’s #txtshow (on the internet) streams live on Zoom. I had the opportunity to see Feldman’s show as a part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival on the 1st which marked #txtshow‘s 111th performance. Philly Fringe

You’ll Be Able To Transfer From Pokemon Go To Sword And Shield By The End Of The Year

We learned a ton of new details about Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Crown Tundra expansion during The Pokemon Company’s latest video presentation, but that wasn’t all that was discussed during the broadcast. Near the end of the video, the company also reconfirmed that Pokemon Go compatibility is coming to Pokemon Home before the year is up, which means you’ll soon be able to move monsters you’ve caught in the mobile game into Sword and Shield.

The Pokemon Company didn’t pin down exactly when this compatibility will go live, but it did confirm that it’s coming before the end of 2020. Once it’s added, you’ll be able to transfer Pokemon you’ve caught in Pokemon Go directly to Pokemon Home, and from there into Sword or Shield (if that Pokemon appears in the Galar Pokedex). Previously, the only way to transfer Pokemon from Go to Home was through Let’s Go, Pikachu or Let’s Go, Eevee, but this only applied to Gen 1 monsters.

The Pokemon Company hasn’t yet detailed exactly how this transfer process will work, but there are a few caveats. First, the company notes that “certain special Pokemon” aren’t transferrable. This presumably applies to the costumed Pokemon that appear during events and other such monsters. Each transfer only works one way as well; any Pokemon brought from Go into Home cannot be returned to its original game.

There may be another wrinkle to the process. Serebii reports that the Japanese Pokemon support site mentions that transferring Pokemon from Go may cost PokeCoins. It appears that there will be a cooldown period after players transfer a Pokemon from Go to Home, and this period can be shortened by spending PokeCoins. It’s not yet clear how many PokeCoins this will cost.

If you do transfer a pocket monster over from the mobile game to Home, you’ll receive a few bonuses. First, you’ll get the Mystery Box in Pokemon Go. When this is opened, the Mythical Pokemon Meltan will spawn in the wild for a limited time, letting you catch it. You can read more about how
