Greg Wohead

Celebration, Florida

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Fri 9 Jun, 20:00

Advisory age: 14+



Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can’t stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that never existed.

This is a show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.

Greg will speak to you through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. The performers will know almost nothing about the show before they walk on stage.

Guest performers  for this evening will be Benedict Sandiford (The Final Whistle, Jackson's Corner) & Professor Lib Taylor (University of Reading).
