Updated closure information

By Marcus Ian McKenzie
in association with Club Greg International

An alchemy of sound, words, sweat and tears.

Crying rooms are the small, soundproof chambers at the back of theatre auditoriums where a person can fully experience an event via one-way glass and live audio feed without disrupting the congregation.

But what if a crying room was actually a space dedicated to emotionality? A place not to conceal tears, but to invoke them?


At Home Residency Showing

A sneak peek into the work was livestreaming on Saturday 1 August 2020.

We plan to share a full or partial recording of this Showing soon. Join the Take Over! Facebook Group for announcements.
