Theatre Works presents the Victorian premiere of Nicola Gunn’s Hello My Name Is, a participatory performance about getting up close and personal with strangers.
Set in a room called the “Community Centre”, the audience are cast as volunteers. Their mission: To build a community.
With no two shows exactly alike, this will be a theatrical experience where the audience is immersed in the action. As the performance unravels the complexities and mysteries of everyday life, viewers are asked to rethink the way they connect with strangers.
Hello My Name Is looks at some of the most mundane features of social interaction and turns them into thought provoking snippets of everyday life. Nicola introduces us to various characters and shares anecdotes drawn from her own experiences to question what we value and what they say about who we are.
