Pop-up Immersive Theatre
000 The Play
As the pandemic changes the nature of relationships, has it exacerbated certain relationship dynamics more than others? Or has it remained constant?
Based on true events, "000" explores how love evolves, and where the line between love and self-love gets blurred. We take you through an extraordinary journey of the female protagonist's understanding of the difference between love, self-love, respect and all the quintessential pillars that guide our sense of freedom. We explore the pillars with her, as her own insight into what it means to be truly loved evolves.
A dramatic masterpiece of the present day, "000 The Play" is a timely reminder for what it means to set yourself free, as echoed by the tagline
"Find the courage to free yourself".
Our world premiere saw two sold-out shows! So we are working on bringing you some more!
For a one-of-a-kind immersive theatre experience in Melbourne's first pop-up theatres across Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Amsterdam
