Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can’t stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that never existed.
This is a show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.
Greg will speak to you through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. The performers will know almost nothing about the show before they walk on stage.
// Celebration, Florida will be presented in previews in Derby, London and Leeds followed by the premiere in Edinburgh with Forest Fringe. There will be two new unrehearsed guest performers for each show who will be announced nearer the time. //
