Intimacy

Differences between us are often the most surprising points of connection.

A few years ago, Adriano Cortese was living above a shop on a street filled with bars, cafes and restaurants, in Melbourne. One night he decided he wanted to meet some new people so he walked onto the street and introduced himself to strangers walking past.

This was the beginning of a night filled with intense personal dialogue and shared intimacy. This work is based on this event and subsequent meetings with strangers.

Why is it sometimes easier to be honest with a total stranger than with someone we know?

Intimacy promises to give the audience a truly intimate experience through both the subject matter of the show and the intimate style of the presentation.

“Intimacy is a stunning psychological and theatrical achievement…We are all in emotional danger if we isolate our souls, this extraordinary piece suggests.” Emer O’Kelly, Irish Independent.
