Next Exit blends performing arts, technology and traditional storytelling to
create interactive evening around the campfire telling stories - digitally.

NEW YORK, NY - (June 2 & 3, 1999)- Digital storytelling guru Dana Atchley
will perform his interactive theatrical creation, Next Exit, a New
York-debut performance that follows his life story, at the Kitchen, today
and tomorrow, June 2 & 3rd.  Next Exit, a benefit performance for the
NYC-based non-profit organization, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.,
will highlight the innovative recombination of today's performing arts,
technology and the best of the legacies our ancestors have left us.

Atchley, a master storyteller who has been featured in recent publications
such as Presentations and Fast Company magazines, has been touted as the
Will Rogers of Digital Storytelling.  Armed only with a campfire (TV
screen) and a little technology to support him, this interactive artist
will bring Digital Storytelling to life.  He will begin and then allow the
audience to decide which exit is the "Next Exit," their story will take.

Digital Storytelling accentuates the strengths of various
mediums--including still-frame photography, motion pictures, computer
technology, spoken language, music and the Internet--to reach out, touch
and eventually massage the heart and mind of the audience at the point of
contact thereby achieving the ultimate goal of storytelling--engagement.

In addition to Next Exit, Dana has created digital stories and emotional
branding (tm) opportunities for The Coca-Cola Company,
PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Hallmark Cards, and Broderbund Software to name a
few.  He is the founder and director of the annual Digital Storytelling
Festival in Crested Butte, Colo., and was recently named a Top 100 Producer
of 1998 by AV Multimedia producer magazine.  Dana's work has been covered
by many publications including Presentation, Fast Company, Rolling Stone,
the San Francisco Examiner, and TV Guide.

The Kitchen is located at 512 West 19th Street.  Shows each night bill begin
at 8:00 p.m.  The performance is open to the public and the $20, at-the-door
tickets go on sale at 6:00 p.m. for the night of the show.
