LaMarea Show Image
A man has just had a motorbike accident… An insomniac tries to get to sleep… A couple have their first kiss… A man stands on a balcony escaping the party that rages on behind him…
 
When strangers walk past you on the street, do you ever start imagining what they are thinking? Where they come from? Or what they are doing there at the very moment you glance upon them? Mariano Pensotti from Buenos Aires does, and he has put these intimate snapshots into words and staged them in our city, at night.
 
In real time, moving from the pavement to illuminated windows, from balconies to café terraces. La Marea presents the secret stories and private emotions that brings Quartiere Bloom to vivid life before your eyes..
 
Starting and stopping every ten minutes, make sure you get there early to catch each of the nine different stories.
 
What Do We Think?
A poetic and revealing site-specific work that will change the way you perceive strangers on the street forever.
