About

South Street's SITELINES strand is proud to host this very special new show by Dante or Die & Chloë Moss in association with Lok'n'Store

A site-specific journey of one woman and her stuff through a lifetime in self-storage from the company who brought you 'I Do' at Malmaison Hotel (SITELINES 2013).
 
“Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things” Schopenhauer 
 
Handle With Care is a new immersive play about the things we hold onto, their value and how they tell our individual stories. Seen through the eyes of a young woman as she gets older, the performance is an intimately personal, fly-on-the-wall experience through the corridors and storage units of Lok’n’Store. The utterly unique show studies how we accumulate objects, the meaning that we place on those seemingly banal belongings and how they can give us a sense of home. Join Zoe from 1988 to the present as she stores and stores and stores as the years go on and on and on.

Location
Lok’n’Store Reading: 251, A33 Relief Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG2 0RR (for Sat-Navs use: RG2 0BY).  
Please arrive at Lok’n’Store at least fifteen minutes before your time slot with your booking reference.
 
Lok’n’Store is fully accessible but please be aware that this is a promenade performance so the audience will be moving around without seating for the 90 minute duration. Please mention when booking your ticket if you have particular access requirements, or email hexagon.boxoffice@reading.gov.uk if booking online, and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

The storage facilities are not heated and can be cold even when sunny outside, therefore it is advisable to dress up warm for the show.
 
Supporters
Handle With Care is a co-commission between South Street, Harlow Playhouse, The Lowry Salford Quays & The Lighthouse Poole and generously funded by Arts Council England. Dante or Die are really excited to be collaborating with Lok’n’Store to create this unique performance.
