Aria Entertainment and WEF Productions join forces with The Lowry to bring the critically acclaimed live production of C-O-N-T-A-C-T, to two new outdoor locations in Salford and Manchester from January next year.
A young woman sits alone on a park bench, lost in her own thoughts. What is she thinking? Dive into her mind in this unique sensory and immersive theatre experience.
After taking the streets of Paris and London by storm with sell-out performances, C-O-N-T-A-C-T now journeys north to the streets of Salford and Manchester.
Become totally immersed in the world of our characters for 50 remarkable minutes, 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.
