Feel Me

Who do you care about and why?

Feel Me is a new interactive show which asks, via your mobile phone, who and what you care about from the stories unfolding live on stage in front of you.

Worlds unfold from backpacks, and tents are constructed and dismantled again, each scene and location temporary, like a transient teenager in search of safety, acceptance and a new place to call home. An interrogation of empathy, Feel Me asks what makes us ‘feel’ for another person, as we journey through landscapes and across borders, through weather storms and paperwork, changing seasons, endless queues and interviews.

A stunning mixture of live performance, film, projection, dance and music, Feel Me will explore the different lenses through which we are told, and connect to stories in the modern digital world.

Running at the New Wolsey Theatre from Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 June, all performances will have integrated captions.
