You’re seated at a table, opposite a stranger, separated by a glass partition. A stack of instruction cards sits between you. This analog, interactive experience puts you and a stranger at the centre of a private 'performance'.

Generating rave reviews from The New York Times, this intimate performance is a profoundly radical invitation to re-imagine how we see each other, and ourselves

At a time when virtual interactions have fractured and flattened the ways we relate to one another, this encounter explores the line between strangeness and kinship, distance and proximity.

“It is a joy; even if it scares you, go. This is a work of inquisitive humanity and profound gentleness, which over the course of an hour buffs away the armour that lets us proceed through our days brusque, numb and antagonistic.” The New York Times, 2021

Recommended for ages 16 and up.
 

NOTE: This experience is between you and a stranger. If you purchased more than one ticket as part of your order, your party will be split up so that you and the other person on your order will experience the performance in different locations at the State Library of New South Wales. Maximum of three tickets per order. Tickets are purchased through Vivid Sydney - ticket enquiries and refund requests should be made directly to their office. Vivid Sydney can be contacted here.
 

This event is presented in partnership with Vivid Sydney.
