Since I Suppose
one step at a time like this
CHICAGO SHAKESPEARE THEATER AND RICHARD JORDAN PRODUCTIONS LTD
PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE FESTIVAL AND ARTS HOUSECome on a journey through a city made unfamiliar. A guided tour through the hidden secrets and invisible forces that lurk within the place you call home.
Since I Suppose is a groundbreaking and immersive exploration of Melbourne’s places of pleasure and power – an engaging work of theatre that places you at its centre.
"Since I Suppose is a powerfully, immeasurably inventive trip." ★★★★★ Time Out Chicago
Wending your way through the streets of Melbourne, you become observer and judge in a tale stolen from Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. The device sitting in your palm leads you through a dizzying web of video, audio, site-specific happenings and unexpected, real life one-on-one encounters, as you prowl the city’s thoroughfares and byways.
Keep your eyes open and be ready for anything – this is theatre as you have never experienced it before.
Since I Suppose starts at Grand Hyatt Melbourne (Russell Street entrance) and ends in North Melbourne. Once at the Grand Hyatt you will receive a phone call. Make sure you bring your phone, fully charged. The show does not end where it starts – please dress for weather and walking.
Book with a friend or on your own – each journey will be experienced by two people each session. Please respect each other’s solitude.
