Intimacy (2010)

By Adriano Cortese

01 October 2010 – 23 October 2010 Beckett Theatre

Malthouse Theatre, Ranters Theatre, Melbourne International Arts Festival,

Commission Devised Theatre Co-Production World Premiere

A man steps out of his apartment into the chaos of a busy night. His aim: nothing more than to speak to strangers, to meet new people, to flirt with the simple differences any urban street may throw up. The result: an evening of human connection between people whose collision is as profound as it is happenstance.

 

"THIS IS CONTEMPORARY PERFORMANCE OF THE HIGHEST CALIBRE, WROUGHT WITH DEFT SKILL AND TEMPERED WITH A DISCERNING, UNWAVERING HAND. THIS IS THEATRE OF THE MOMENT."

— Real Time Magazine
