The Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) proudly presents C-O-N-T-A-C-T a live theatre experience like no other.
Members of the audience, armed with headphones and a tailored mobile app downloaded to their smartphones, will be immersed in the play's state-of-the-art 3D soundscape while they enter Sarah’s thoughts just as she is approached by a stranger – who is not quite what he appears. 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.
Over the course of 50 minutes, audiences will experience this new piece of technology that synchronizes the spectators and actors, allowing the show to play with theatrical concepts and a new form of dramaturgy.
Director Daniel Jenkins says: “C-O-N-T-A-C-T is an extraordinary piece of theatre, specifically designed to immerse our audience inside the heads of the characters. Most importantly, it is a play about love, about how we have become disconnected from each other during these difficult pandemic years, and how, after two years of separation, it is time to start connecting and making contact with those around us once more C-O-N-T-A-C-T is a play that will leave you feeling hopeful for better times.”
C-O-N-T-A-C-T redefines what theatre can do, and how it can re-invent itself to be relevant to our times. Originally a French production written by Eric Chantelauze, it is adapted into English by Quentin Bruno.
This play is available in five language options: Greek, Italian, Dutch, French, and English.
Starring Chanel Ariel Chan, Keagan Kang, Rebecca Ashley Dass, Vester Ng and voice actors Brendon Fernandez and Ching Shu Yi.
