Tower invites you to gaze a little longer at the private spaces on the edges of the public city streets we pass through everyday. In this site-specific performance in Elephant & Castle, a shifting urban landscape provides the backdrop to solitary moments and private scenes staged within the windows of a high-rise building. While wearing headphones that transport you into the rooms of the performance through a 3D binaural soundscape, you will peer into these spaces from a distance with binoculars, choosing where to look and what to listen to.
Tower is a show about the everyday lives lived within the architecture of the city and the memories housed within its walls.
