The UK premiere of C-o-n-t-a-c-t, an immersive outdoor performance with a 3D sound design, which audiences will listen to on their own headphones will be performed across various London sites.   

The play will see performances from Charles Angiama, Louis Bernard, Chloe Gentles, Max Gold, Richard Heap, Aoife Kennan, Katja Quist and Laura White. The cast will alternate between three London locations; Tower Bridge, Greenwich and Clapham Common.

C-o-n-t-a-c-t was originally created by Samuel Sené and Gabrielle Jourdain and premiering in France with French production company Musidrama over the summer in a world where social distancing became the ‘new normal’, this timely story of a moving and unexpected encounter explores the themes of mental health and anxiety through the eyes of Sarah as she is approached by someone she believes to be a stranger. She discovers that he can hear her thoughts but how? Who is this man? Dive into her mind in this unique sensory and immersive new show and experience theatre like never before.

The show will run for 50 minutes without an interval and audiences will download the audio from the app which is a completely new piece of technology which synchronises the spectators and actors, allowing the show to play with theatrical concepts and a new form of dramaturgy. Audiences of no more than 15 per show will purchase their tickets online and will then receive a link to download the app which will provide the exact location.

C-o-n-t-a-c-t is on from 31st August – 10th October. Times: 4.30pm, 6pm, 7.30pm. Admission: £22.50

Tickets can be purchased via TodayTix or the C-o-n-t-a-c-t website: https://www.contactshow.co.uk
