Circles Circles

"Circles" is a multimedia, site-specific and interactive theatre piece exploring how media technologies can enhance an audience’s experience to and understanding of stories loosely connected to AIDS.

From 70s clubbing, to ganglord honour, corporate greed and religious fervour, Circles is an interactive, site specific theatre piece taking you on a journey through four very different stories connected with HIV/AIDS.

Are you are willing to see the world through another pair of eyes? And if so, will the world then ever look the same again?

Four unique stories, all with a very loose connection to HIV/AIDS. But these are not HIV/AIDS stories per se but rather stories which question our ability to feel empathy for others. Circles was inspired by the rise of homophobia in both the African and African-Caribbean community but in the wake of the ongoing banking crisis and last summer's London riots, Circles has since become a much larger project.

There are four stories and the audience will not be simple bystanders but will participate within each story.

All four conclusions will in turn be performed on the 12th of May in the Baldwin Room at the Tricycle Theatre. These conclusions will be dictated by the audience's response to each story's central character and this reaction will be illustrated by the four adjectives audience members will be asked to text at the conclusion of each performance.

Since this is a workshop performance ATTENDANCE IS FREE and you are welcome to come to one, two and all five performances of Circles we simply ask for those who are interested to book with the project's Creative Producer Esther Nissard.
