Aria Entertainment and WEF Productions have announced that their critically-acclaimed outdoor production C-o-n-t-a-c-t will run for six weeks from 18 May to 29 June.
An immersive two-hander, the show features 3D sound design and will run in partnership with The Lowry in Salford Quays and Manchester.
After a hugely successful London run, there will be new casting for the locations, including Charles Angiama, Chloe Gentles, Rachael Gill-Davis, and Cellan Scott.
C-o-n-t-a-c-t has also been licensed to open in Brussels, Rome, Sweden and Toronto, as well as further Canadian locations.
The production opened to rave reviews from The Guardian and the i, with The Times calling it “a tantalising vision of a new kind of theatre”.
Originally created by Samuel Sené and Gabrielle Jourdain, the show brings together a creative team that includes direction by Sené, book by Eric Chantelauze, with an English adaptation by Quentin Bruno. There is music and sound design by Cyril Barbessol and associate direction by Bronagh Lagan.
C-o-n-t-a-c-t first premiered in France with French production company Musidrama last summer. A timely story of a moving and unexpected encounter, the show explores the themes of mental health and anxiety through the eyes of Sarah as she is approached by someone she believes to be a stranger. She discovers that he can hear her thoughts but how? Who is this man? Dive into her mind in this unique sensory and immersive new show and experience theatre like never before.
