Walker & Thorpe: I Wish I Was Lonely
Live at LICA: In the City present:
I Wish I Was Lonely
I Wish I Was Lonely is an interactive show about contactability. A show in which the audience commit to leaving their phones on. A show investigating what it means to participate in communication – or not. There will be poems, there will be stories and there will be conversation. I Wish I Was Lonely is the new show from Fringe-First winners Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe (following 2011’s The Oh F*ck Moment) that asks how much of ourselves we've given up to the new Gods in our pockets.
About the Artists
Chris Thorpe is a theatre-maker. Hannah Jane Walker is a poet. Together they make award-winning work that is part performance, part poetry gig and part interactive experience. Their shows take place in rooms: sometimes those rooms are theatres, but often they're offices, meeting rooms, cafes - anywhere that people can come together.
These performances are held at The Dukes Theatre (Round) at 1pm and 8pm on Friday 13th February 2015
Free U26 / Student Supporter tickets are only valid on the 1pm show and can be obtained by calling the Live at LICA Box Office.
An excellently crafted piece, both thoughtful and relevant, which challenges us to take a step back from our technology-obsessed lives [4 stars]
