Imagine Me To Be There
Imagine Me To Be There is an inventive, participatory and humorous performance that playfully challenges the conventions of theatre, watching and our imagination. The performance plays with stereotypical fragments of narration we all are familiar with (red high heels, a knife, flickering lights) and with our desire to build up stories.
The audience enters a bare space. A performer, Sylvia Rimat, sits on the floor with a laptop. There’s also a drum kit and a sharp knife. The performance happens in the mind of the performer whilst being typed live on the laptop and projected on a large screen for the audience to read. Audience members gradually become embroiled into the fabric of a fragmented story that oscillates between the performer in blue jeans and a woman in a brown fluffy full body bear costume and bright red high heels. Something evil is about to happen. Audience members are asked to step in and carry out simple actions to help bringing the typed story alive and soon the real interferes with the imagined.
