Backbone Youth Arts: The Pact

Backbone Youth Arts (Brisbane)

​What does it take you to make a promise? What does it take you to follow it through? The Pact is an intimate, solo audience work that explores the idea of communicating and sharing with a stranger. It is a unique opportunity for audience members to engage in an intimate experience with someone they’ve never met.

Through non-verbal communication and the use of various mediums, stories are shared and audience members are invited to co-create a moment with the performer that can be as courageous or as light as they want. Ultimately your experience will conclude with an invitation to make a pact or promise with the performer to nominate and undertake an action inspired by the performance
