Long Exposure Photograph of theatre located in Southeastern Wisconsin. Upon arrival, it seemed like the entire place was locked up solid. We pushed through bramble bushes and scrambled up sheer, muddly cliffs as we attempted to find side doors to sneak through. After about a dozen full-circles around the gigantic building, we decided to hang our heads and leave. Suddenly…a lightbulb moment. We checked one more spot and there was the opening as obvious as day. The only thing? The “entry” required quite a bit of the Fat Man’s Squeeze, completely down on our bellies, slithering face-first in the mud no less. No turning back…we pushed through! With our flashlight and phone lights on full power, we found a staircase, climbed up, and there it was, the massive theatre! We walked right onto the busted-up stage, like musicians, actors, performers, and artists before us. Man, what a sight! The theatre was truly void of any and all light – not easy when it came to walking around to get from one corner to the other without tripping on the buckets of garbage (and literal buckets) that littered every square inch of the place. After experimenting with some typical colors, we thought to ourselves: nah, go big or go home. A lush purple that would make Prince smurk, with a neon lemon-lime to match. Scurrying from corner to corner in the pitch black, we filled the abandoned theatre with light one last time.
