Watch, create, perform and control… Thrashing Without Looking is experiential theatre at its most daring. Combining interactive performance and live cinema in an intimate sensory experience,Thrashing Without Looking is created and controlled by the audience, simultaneously constructing, witnessing and experiencing the scenes as they play out.
Navigating moments of confusion, anticipation and exhilaration, this playful provocation of crowd dynamics will saturate the senses and challenge personal experiences of trust, intimacy and comfort. Expect video goggles, champagne and loud music in a disorienting journey through small talk, hysteria, loneliness, banality and cliché. This is Thrashing Without Looking‘s much anticipated return to Performance Space after wowing audiences at its premiere at Liveworks 2010!
“It provoked all sorts of thoughts…how trust and agency are still called upon and how intense and liberating is the sense of touch…I didn’t want to leave.” Fiona McGregor, Real Time
