'Change begins inside of us, and in the spaces between us.' BEN KULVICHIT, EXEUNT
Surrender to this intimate and refreshing moment to think, speak and listen.
When was the last time you made time to talk? Life is hectic, and real human connection feels increasingly rare. Neither Here Nor There engages different voices, perspectives and lives to pose the question, ‘how can we live together?’
Sonia and Jo host a series of conversations that happen over 6 minutes. There will be solos, duets and ensemble moments. Complexity takes time, it requires multiple voices, many levels of expertise and patience in the unspectacular.
This event is part of the In Between Time Summit Day 3 programme. The event is included in the 1-Day Ticket or 3-Day Summit Pass and cannot be booked separately.
Jo and Sonia have worked together on several projects including Wallflower and Entitled for Quarantine and recently Ways of Being Together and The Kitchen Table as part of Jo’s Creative Wales Award Project 2017. Jo and Sonia contributed to National Theatre Wales’ and Quarantine’s new co-production for Festival of Voice.
