Award-winning producer Katy Lipson & Aria Entertainment join forces with Mathilde Moulin & WEF Productions to present the UK Premiere of C-O-N-T-A-C-T, a thrilling, vital and inspired new theatrical experience for our socially-distanced times.
“This 50 minute socially-distanced performance takes place in public spaces around the City of London. Samuel Sene and Gabrielle Jourdain’s show takes us into the head of Sarah, a young woman experiencing anxiety and mental health issues. Approached by someone she believes to be a stranger, she discovers that he can hear her thoughts. You will be able to hear her thoughts too via an audio app that you download before the show. A journey through the city combining live performance with landscape and audio elements? Sounds intriguing.”
A young woman sits alone on a park bench, lost in her own thoughts. What is she thinking? Dive into her mind in this unique sensory and immersive theatre experience.
After taking the streets of Paris by storm, with sell-out performances, C-O-N-T-A-C-T now journeys to the streets and parks of London, offering its unique blend of immersive theatre and sensorial soundscapes to a whole new audience, eager to once again experience live theatre. Become totally immersed in the world of our characters for 50 remarkable minutes, as you plug into this joyous, poetic and liberating experience, literally. Delivered via an app created especially for this exciting new show, you will be swept-away by state-of- the-art 3D sound design as you use your smartphone and headphones to navigate the performance. Walk the path shoulder to shoulder with the performers and share their sensations and thoughts, as the action unfolds before your eyes. This unique, bold and life-affirming production pushes the boundaries of what live theatre can achieve, allowing us to redefine what ‘performance’ means to us, and ultimately encouraging us to fall in love with theatre all over again.
