Avatar Me

Next event:

​Live someone else’s life.

You are standing in a market in the suburbs of Johannesburg, shopping for fruit. Or maybe you are catching a tuktuk down the busy streets of Mumbai. Or you are cooking in a small village in Moldova. 

Then, someone you don't know speaks to you and for a moment you have no idea where you are. You look down and you discover someone else's body. You speak but it's not your voice. You are no longer yourself, you are someone else, in a different life, in a completely different part of the world.  

Avatar Me is a personal, one-to-one performance, where you live someone else's life for 45 minutes, live, here and now. 

The cast is based in South Africa, Brazil, Moldova, India and Malaysia, and the performance is a live-streamed experience where you affect another person's actions elsewhere in the world. You will be placed in unfamiliar surroundings, meet with unknown people – maybe you'll make a new friend and perhaps you'll experience something you would never have experienced in your own life. 

The performance is an intimate experience with the closeness and presence that you recognise from the theatre – and yet something entirely different and unique.
