1 min 50 secs


Maybe If You Choreograph Me, You Will Feel Better is an interactive performance set between a street and a window. The show takes the form of a relationship between one male audience member and one female performer. The audience member looks out of a window onto the street. Somewhere, among the dozens of passersby, he will find a woman who will obey his every instruction. This piece has been awarded the Total Theatre Award for Innovation and the Arches Brick Award in 2011.
