Enter a titillating world of scents and sounds, sharpen your instincts and allow yourself to lose control. Sit in a wheelchair, put on a blindfold and indulge your imagination, as all your pleasures, fears, desires and memories are confronted. This intense and intimate experience bridges the point where performance art meets theatre. Everyone will have a unique response – but leaves feeling ultimately exhilarated.

Winning the Scotsman Fringe First and the 2008 Adelaide Fringe Award for Best Production, this exceptional production comes to Dublin after playing Kilkenny Arts Festival and taking the world’s Festivals by storm.

Shows will commence every half hour during the the periods shown.

Proudly supported by the Belgian Embassy, Dublin.

Performed in English.

As part of the Ontroerend Goed Trilogy also featuring Internal and A Game of You.
