Presented By Teatro Só


Part of Greenwich Fair and On Your Doorstep: Eltham

28 & 29 August

Duration: 25 mins

What to Expect: Speech free


In this moving stilt theatre performance, a giant bench provides the poetic setting for a performance exploring loneliness in old age. Bringing social isolation and ageing into larger-than-life focus, this universal story resonates with recent memories of lockdown. Following the performance, audience members are invited to explore the bench and experience the world from a different perspective.
