Control 25

Here's a really exciting one-off event produced by associate artist Sarah Hogarth and working with local artists and the recently 'emerged' participants of the Emerging Artists Programme. Places are limited, so best to book soon.
Control 25:  8th November Liverpool
In partnership with Hope Street Ltd, All Things Considered Theatre presents - Control 25, 8th November 2014, 12pm onwards Liverpool. Liverpool’s first large scale one to one performance event. Happening in everyday spaces and places, Control 25 invites you to surrender, share and take control as you go on a solo journey around the streets of Liverpool. The journey you take is up to you and will depend on how much risk you are willing to take. Which route will you choose?
Route 1 – Remote Control: Observing, Familiar, Everyday
Route 2 - Birth Control: Warm, Gentle, Playful
Route 3 - Pest Control: Surprising, Hazardous, Bold
Route 4 - Passport Control: Risky, Adventurous, Uncertain
What to expect? Audience members will participate in a series of intimate encounters created by a group of emerging artists from Hope Street Ltd. What are the One to One encounters? At this stage it is difficult to tell you about the individual one to one performances as many of them are still in development. I can however give you an idea of some of the work. One piece will explore 'The sensation of being measured'. Another piece will involve going on a taxi ride with a Liverpool cabbie, the friendliest taxi drivers in the world!!...or are they?  Another piece will invite audience/participants to walk in the shoes of a real life couple from Liverpool as we experience their first date, with another encounter exploring the simple moments in life. 
Artist Talk:  6pm -7.30pm 8th November
Control 25 will conclude with an artists’ talk, hosted by Liverpool John Moore’s University Drama department. Ant Hampton, Sharron Devine and Seth Honnor (Kaleider) will be speaking, with guest speaker Dr Rachel Zerihan.
