Season Two – KNOT

You are joined on a park bench by a woman who is lost in the city. You are in a car heading both towards and away from the park. In a meeting room a cyclical story, tied up like a knot with no ends, is conjured into existence by a collective effort.

KNOT is a trilogy, a three-part immersive audio experience for you to enjoy. The story unfolds in three different locations, and you – as the audience – join in. For the first episode audiences will situate themselves on a park bench, for the second in a car, and for the third in a room of their home.

Three intersecting, interwoven episodes question how inevitable anything is. You will need to experience all three for the story to be complete.

Dates & Times:

28th/29th Oct – Episode 1: 3pm, Episode 2: 3.45pm, Episode 3: 4.30pm

30th/31st Oct – Episode 1: 3pm & 7pm, Episode 2: 3.45pm & 7.45pm, Episode 3: 4.30pm & 8.30pm
