Gripping... If the line between audience and performer seems blurred, Rotozaza’s 'Etiquette' erases it entirely
Etiquette is a half-hour experience for two people in a public space. There is no-one watching - other people in the cafe or bar are not aware of it. You wear headphones which tell you what to say to each other, or to use one of the objects positioned to the side. There is a kind of magic involved - for it to work you just need to listen and respond accordingly. Etiquette is theatre at its most raw; it is live, insightful, philosophical and incredibly unique. The participants are both the actors and the audience, and the show offers the fantasy of being able to speak without having to think what to say.
Etiquette is also available in Français (French), Português (Portuguese), Nederlands (Dutch), Español (Spanish), Deutsch (German), Italiano (Italian), Japanese, Polski (Polish), Slovenski (Slovene), Cymraeg (Welsh), and Magyar (Hungarian).
