FIND YOUR SEAT

How do we satisfy our longing to touch? How do we continue to make meaningful contact? How can being house-bound set us free?
Experience a one on one performance over the phone with multi-award winning artist Stacy Makishi. A transformational and sacred ritual with the most mundane household objects, in which opening the fridge door becomes a rite of passage and flushing the toilet is a radical act to heal your loss. You may be house-bound but Stacy will set you free.

Fresh from The Yard’s physical stage, Christopher Green’s interactive ★★★★★ No Show is ready for a world in which theatre has no physical stage. He’s taken the “fascinating exploration of performance” (The Stage) he shared at The Yard in February, and created a new experience to be a part of through Zoom.

But Chris isn’t sure he believes in theatre and/or entertainment anymore. What’s the point of performance in a pandemic? Will he even be logging on?

Book in and find out. Book in to be part of an audience again. Book in to laugh together, dance together, be surprised and shocked together.
