An immersive slideshow inspired by an installation by Russian artist Ilya Kabakov. A guest performer follows instructions on wireless headphones they have never heard before in front of an audience of ten. The audience becomes the ten characters in Kabakov's work. The performance draws on notions of escape and makes a journey, like Kabakov, between east and west, flying and falling, attempt and failure. Commissioned by hÅb Arts (Manchester) and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre. Developed at First Bite, Forest Fringe and Hatch. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
