Behind Closed Doors
- Streets of Spitalfields
Behind closed doors is an immersive outdoor show taking over the streets of East London. Inspired by choose-your-own-adventure books, this individual theatrical experience takes you through a labyrinth of stories inspired by the lives of a small community. From comic to tragic, romantic to absurd, stories explore themes of intimacy, how neighbourhood stories connect and how strangers’ perceptions can define us.
Visitors are invited to access a mobile website using their own phones and headphones and to follow clues taking them across the iconic streets of Spitalfields. The show combines sound design, mobile technology, art installations and live performances behind house windows.
About the company: 27 degrees is a multicultural collective of artists creating immersive audience experiences in unusual spaces. We believe the arts should not only take place behind the closed doors of theatres, and all a theatre company needs is a solid suitcase and a sense of adventure. We perform in public spaces, museums, tunnels, crypts or in the middle of woods. Our work interweaves storytelling with sound design, music, dance and installation to create socially-engaged shows that resonate with the contemporary world.
Practical details: this is an individual audio experience lasting about 45 minutes. You will need a mobile phone with access to mobile data and a pair of headphones. You can book a timeslot as a group but each audience member will have an individual experience. The experience takes place outdoors and social distancing can be respected at all times.
Age guidance: 14+
Accessibility: the experience includes transcripts for D/deaf audiences. Please contact us if you have any other access requirements and we will endeavour to assist.
Refunds and exchanges: the event has been designed to take place during the Covid-19 pandemic and the event may be adapted or rescheduled based on the latest government guidelines. Tickets will be exchanged or refunded if the event has to be rescheduled or cancelled. Please do not attend if you present any coronavirus symptoms and we will refund or reschedule your ticket.
