Behind closed doors

An interactive audio experience taking place in the streets of London.


How well do you think you know your neighbours?

Behind closed doors is a site-specific theatrical experience accessible via mobile phone.

Inspired by choose-your-own-adventure books, this interactive audio show takes visitors through a labyrinth of stories: clues lead to different outdoor locations where audiences discover tales inspired by the lives of a small community. From comic to tragic, poetic to absurd, stories explore themes of intimacy, how neighbourhood stories connect and how strangers’ perceptions define us.

This project has been developed specifically to take place during the Covid-19 pandemic: the experience combines sound design, mobile technology, miniature art installations and socially-distant performances behind house windows.

Practical details: this is an individual audio experience lasting about 45 minutes. You will need a mobile phone with access to mobile data and a pair of headphones. You can book a timeslot with members of your household but each audience member will have an individual experience.

Age guidance: 14+

Accessibility: the experience includes transcripts for D/deaf audiences. Please contact us if you have any other access requirements and we will endeavour to assist.
