A young woman sits alone on a park bench, lost in her own thoughts. What is she thinking? Dive into her mind in this inspired sensory and immersive theatre experience.
After taking the streets of Paris, Brussels, Rome, Gothenburg, Toronto, London and Manchester by storm with sell-out performances, C-O-N-T-A-C-T now journeys to the streets of Hull.
Delivered via an app created especially for the 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.
This ‘charming’ (Time Out), ‘gripping’ (The Guardian) and ‘magical’ (The Arts Desk) production pushes the boundaries of what live theatre can achieve.
C-O-N-T-A-C-T is presented in association with Musidrama, Bureau Sauvage and Touaregs.
‘Delightful. An inspired piece of theatre.’ The Guardian
‘A tantalising vision of a new kind of theatre.’ The Times
‘Genuinely magical.’ The Arts Desk
Location: Pier Street, Hull, HU1
