The show runs for 50 minutes without an interval and audiences download the audio from the app which is a completely new piece of technology synchronizing the spectators and actors, allowing the show to play with theatrical concepts and a new form of dramaturgy. Audiences of no more than 15 per show will purchase their tickets online and will then receive a link to download the app which will provide the exact location.
Following the government’s recent announcement regarding the reduction of social gatherings to six, it is understood that this doesn’t affect performances of C-O-N-T-A-C-T as the show complies with the safety & hygiene measures in place for businesses and the performing arts set out by the government. This pedestrian performance is an outdoor promenade experience for small groups of up to 15 and adheres to strict social distancing between audience members. It is also an audio experience which involves no direct speaking of any actor in the play. All audience members will be required to wear a face covering and observe social distancing measures.
