From 29 April 2022 | The Arts House, 1 Old Parliament Lane
A young woman sits alone on a park bench, lost in her own thoughts. What is she thinking?
In a world where social distancing is the norm, Sarah is approached in the street by a stranger passing by, who turns out to be much more than he seems. In 50 minutes, Sarah’s life will be forever changed by this extraordinary moment of C-O-N-T-A-C-T. A beautiful story of love, loss, catharsis, and redemption.
C-O-N-T-A-C-T finally reaches Singapore after its world-premiere in Paris in 2020 followed by a whirlwind tour of the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium and Canada.
Become totally immersed in the world of our characters, as you plug into this joyous, poetic and liberating experience, literally. Delivered via an app created especially for this exciting new 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. Walk the path with the performers and share their sensations and thoughts, as the action unfolds before your eyes.
This ‘charming’ (Time Out), ‘gripping’ (The Guardian) and ‘magical’ (The Arts Desk) production pushes the boundaries of what live theatre can achieve, allowing us to redefine what ‘performance’ means to us, and ultimately encouraging us to fall in love with theatre all over again.
