Guided theatre starts with a phone call

EXPERIENCE a completely different kind of theatre in Exeter with no stage, no visible actors, and no audience sitting comfortably.

Participants are asked to meet in a well-known Exeter location where they will receive a phone call and the performance of You With Me begins.

For the next 45 minutes, they will talk to a stranger while being guided on a playful adventure where unexpected incidents cause familiar routes to be seen with fresh eyes.

What develops is an exhilarating experience, strangely eliciting a very personal story, which the participant positions themselves at the centre of.

The performance uses the backdrop of a highly-populated built-up city environment and is played out through the use of technology.

You With Me is an inaugural project from Kaleider supported by arts funding, and a co-production with Reverb, a new theatre group made up for University of Exeter graduates interested in the exploration of space and location in theatre.

The show will run at weekends from Saturday, November 17, to Sunday, December 9, at various times throughout the day.

Artistic director Seth Honnor said: "Kaleider is about bringing new experiences to the people of Exeter and forging new partnerships to create exciting, innovative and boundary breaking events.

"We are delighted to be working with Reverb on this project, which marks the start of a series of creative events for the city over the next three years."

Tickets cost £20. To book a time slot visit www.youwithme.co.uk
