The outdoor immersive production, created by Samuel Sené and Gabrielle Jourdain, originally premiered in France, and the story follows a chance encounter that leads to explorations of mental health and anxiety. The production features 3-D sound design, and audience members will experience the storytelling with their own headphones through an official app for the show.
The production features direction by Sené, book by Eric Chantelauze, English adaptation by Quentin Bruno, music and sound design by Cyril Barbessol, and associate direction by Bronagh Lagan.
