I Wish I Was Lonely @ BAC

The Double Blink team enjoyed a lovely evening at Battersea Arts Centre on Saturday evening, where we went to see I Wish I Was Lonely. It was a participatory show about contactability. A show in which the audience committed to leaving their phones on, investigating what it means to participate in communication – or not.  It was a new show from Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thor, including poems, stories and conversation.

It was really interesting to see their use of technology in the performance and to explore a social norm, the one of turning ones phone off, dismantled and played with. The poems were very sweet. It didn’t touch on the issues concerning us at the moment with our production, so in that sense it seemed a little out of date, or not quiet urgent enough. But it was a sweet little show none the less.
