Get ready to immerse yourself in a new outdoor theatre experience launching in Greenwich, allowing small, socially distanced audiences to enjoy powerful drama and 3D sound using earphones.

The theatrical production caters to audiences, who will be asked to wear masks, made up of no more than 15 people per show, who purchase their ticket online then receive a link to download revealing the exact location.

Audiences will need to grab their headphones and download the audio from the app, which synchronises the spectators and actors, allowing the show to play with theatrical concepts and a new form of dramaturgy.

C-o-n-t-a-c-t first premiered in France and will now have its UK launch at locations including Tower Bridge, Greenwich and Clapham Common.

The show tells the story of a moving and unexpected encounter and explores the themes of mental health and anxiety through the eyes of Sarah as she is approached by someone she believes to be a stranger.

She discovers that he can hear her thoughts as the show ventures into her mind for a sensory and immersive experience.

Co-writers Samuel Sene and Gabrielle Jourdain said: "We were driven by the need to reconnect with our profession and with the audience.

"We wanted to offer an artistic encounter even in the current health context, therefore we have imagined this tailored theatrical experience.

"To be able to share this feeling again, the one we only feel with live performance.

"To reunite with theatre."

Producer Katy Lipson added: "As soon as I discovered C-o-n-t-a-c-t I was immediately drawn into the creativity and themes of the piece and recognised how relevant the material was and how it was created specifically around the times we are currently living.

"As a producer, I remain committed to creating opportunities not only for audiences but for the immense talent pool we have in the UK who are currently without many opportunities to perform.

"I hope the city of London embraces the experience as much as the Parisian audiences."

The show will run from August 31 to October 10 at different outdoor locations around London, including south east London.
