about the performance

A bizarre social experiment involving:
11 pairs, 11 scripts, 11 acts.
11 dialogues, 11 stories and 11 new relationships.

A way of seeing inside ourselves, reflected in a perfect stranger. Starting with encounters at the bar, and the possibility of meeting a perfect stranger: what stories can unfold between two people?

11 pairs of strangers seated across each other at a bar and led to a transformed 'black box' are thrown into the deep end of 11 fictional relationships. Each stranger shares an intimate dialogue with his or her partner by reading from a script laid out before them. 11 stories and relationships unfold as each stranger plays out a different character from one table to the next. Each act lasts approximately 3 minutes, but each trauma may last a lifetime.
