Book Here 

Where We Meet is an interactive, audio-based dance installation where audiences can experience the inner thoughts of a dancer. This piece aims to open up the conversation about mental health and to break down taboos by facilitating an empathetic and intimate experience. It begins with the fundamental notion that we can never truly comprehend what is transpiring in someone's mind if we don’t actively choose to connect and be open to understanding.

Each audience member, equipped with headphones, is tracked in the space. As they walk around the space and choose which performers to engage with, innovative location-tracking technology will trigger audio monologues.

In return, thanks to a wearable device, the dancer can decide which thoughts to share with the audience and invite them to participate in gentle moments of interaction. This version of performance is designed for 2 dancers and 6 participants per session.

Age guidance: This performance is recommended for ages 14+. This age guidance is a recommendation based on the topics covered during the performance and the nature of the interactive performance that requires a certain level of maturity in the space. But we are happy to leave it to the discretion of the parents. Please note that our headphones are sized for an adult head and might feel uncomfortable for smaller heads.

Content warning: The performance covers topics of mental health challenges, especially around body dismorphia and perfectionism and anxiety that some audience members might find distressing. The performance takes place in a dark environment with floor projections.

Post show discussion: The Friday performance at 8:30 will be followed by a short Q&A.

Accessibility

The 6:30pm performance on Saturday will be a relaxed performance with more light in the space and a more detailed onboarding session.
