Don’t blink or you’ll miss it: our much-anticipated pair of shows by Ant Hampton are opening next week and close on May 5. The Quiet Volume, by Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells exposes the strange magic at the heart of the reading experience, while Cue China (Elsewhere, Offshore) merges the audience’s identities with a Chinese factory worker through a glass teleprompter. The runs are short and tickets are very limited so get yours now. Ticket can be booked in pairs or individually.
Exploring a new type of automatic performance, an audience of exactly two people perform the pieces themselves and for each other through listening to whispered instructions via headphones, iPods and teleprompters. No actors, no audience members, just the two participants themselves. The Quiet Volume was created by Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, Cue China was created by Ant Hampton.
