Somebody I Used To Know (Everything I Own)

By | Published on Wednesday 13 August 2014

This show involves spending twenty minutes in a shipping container with just one performer. If you think this would be an intimidating experience, think again. The space is dressed with familiar and nostalgic teenage clutter, and on entry you are offered your choice of variety of sweets. The protagonist’s story is one that we can all relate to: the minor tragedy of trying to maintain dearly-held friendships solely via social media. The piece is an insightful, poignant and emotionally involving experience. Gently encouraging us to question how we interact over long periods of time and across great distances, this is a simple but significant experience that is not to be missed.

Assembly Roxy, until 25 Aug.
