Labyrinth II (1973): Guides in the Lobby614 viewsPhoto provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears writes:

"The audience was met in the lobby by The Guides: white suited figures each wearing a different colored mask. The audience’s tickets were color coded to the color of the masks, so they knew who their Guide was. The Guides led their groups down the wide stairs and into the lower level of the bldg. Each was led through the Labyrinth from a different starting point and the groups would pass in the halls on their ways to their next event. "

Labyrinth II (1973)610 viewsImage provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears describes it thus:

Labyrinth II (April 18-20, 1973) — 7 Events — Lower Level, Baker Hall.

An experiment in environmental theatre which took place in the lower level halls and classrooms of Baker Hall, the Psychology Bldg. We could only take 60 audience members a night. The last night there were 150 people trying to get in to the show. They tried to sneak in via the elevator and through windows!

The Door589 viewsPhoto provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears writes:

"The Door — by E. B. White — a mental patient rambles on as we see images going in his head (a film back projected over his head — subjective camera) of walking endlessly down the anonymous corridors (the same Baker Hall corridors that the audiences are passing through in the Labyrinth show) in pursuit of the “Minotaur” who is just glimpsed passing out of sight in the distance. We also glimpse other figures: a Nurse, two of the White on White figures, until we turn a corner and come upon a cleaning woman — the camera pulls back as she heads towards us and we see the Minotaur crouching on a window ledge in the distance behind her). The camera dollys towards an office door (like the Detention Room door), the door opens and for a moment we see the Minotaur crouched in the corner of the room. This will be the same room used as the Detention Room. — Performed in the TV studio."
