We round up the reviews for this immersive outdoor experience taking place across London until the 10th October.
The Guardian: **** “Billed as a socially distanced outdoor show, C-o-n-t-a-c-t offers an inventive solution to the continued closure of most theatres, even if it feels like a theatrical variation on a silent disco at first.”
British Theatre.com: ***** “The concept and direction of the work stem from Samuel Sene, assisted by Bronagh Lagan. Their use of the ‘real’ spaces of the park is really masterful, although – of course – entirely dependent on which bits of them happen to be free on the night.”
The Stage: *** “An exciting and interesting way to experience theatre, during or after a pandemic.”
The Upcoming: “There are few man-made sets that can match the majesty of London, walking by the Thames, and none that can match its realism. So to be able to experience a show with that as a backdrop is lovely. But it almost feels like a wasted opportunity not to make the location a far greater part of the narrative.”
The Reviews Hub: **** “But beyond the currently ubiquitous monologue, it’s hard to consider another form that would work within the guidelines. C-o-n-t-a-c-t presents, not only an utterly original solution, but also an idea that holds water regardless of the current restrictions.”
The Arts Desk: **** “Real-life theatre bounces back with this lovely meander through grief and loneliness.”
C-o-n-t-a-c-t will run until the 10th October at 4.30, 6.00 and 7.30. To book tickets click here or visit TodayTix.
