Adrift

Set in an infinite ocean, together we create worlds and uncover mysteries.

In an infinite ocean, floating in the unknowable spaces between each other, together we create worlds, uncover mysteries, and fill in the blanks in each other’s stories.  

Part mystery, part game, Adrift is a participatory theatre work that brings audience members together to uncover a story exploring feelings of isolation and our fraught relationship with nature in the face of a potential mass extinction event. 

Following instructions through headsets, participants create detailed worlds as tiny architecture reveals itself, inviting participants to interact with and discover the world around them. Lights turn on, water emerges, and mechanical discoveries are made. Now immersed in the mystery of Adrift, participants explore a series of fantastical true stories of infatuated dolphins, lonely whales, and remote lighthouses.

Is our relationship with nature just as fraught as our relationships with each other, and can we find hope across an ocean of unknown?

What a marvellous production. I commend Counterpilot for their work. Their insight. Their boldness. They take storytelling beyond the social norms.
