THIS IS MINE. WHAT'S YOURS?
one to one performance
ONLY 9 SLOTS AVAILABLE
Saturday 29th April 2017
A site specific based performance for one audience member at a time. You are invited to share an intimate moment with a gorilla. There maybe sharing of secrets you have kept hidden for years, listening to a song that means more than you realise, sharing a cuddle on the sofa to shed the loneliness, confessing over a cup of tea, dancing for the death of a loved one, singing at the top of your voice to a song you can't remember the words to, daring yourself to reveal more than you planned. If not now, when?
The performance plays around with real and imaginary barriers created in our daily lives preventing us from connecting with others and offers an alternative way of being.
Devised and performed by Lauren Hart
'Part dance session, part intimate conversation, Hart invites the audience to explore and overcome their biggest fears, all in less than half an hour. Upon leaving the space, it is hard not to have a smile on your face; the performance creates a safe space for the cathartic release of fearful emotions, and the whole thing feels like some bizarre encounter, an interruption to everyday life that provokes a feeling of relief and serene calm.'
'It was so so simple in a way that made me feel like a child again. It got right to my fear and to my needs...Which ultimately was a hug. Very therapeutic and very beautiful. Keep making this work, the world needs it even if it is one person at a time.'
