In My Shoes
Explore the world’s absurdities from a stranger’s perspective.
Experience what it is to be an astronaut, a politician, or a dominatrix; a paramedic, a murderer or an activist… step into their shoes, hear their thoughts, touch, taste and see the world as they do.
Discover the secrets, mishaps and wonders behind breaking a record, saving a life, committing a crime or living with a disability. Answering questions you dare not ask, strangers guide you through the world seen through their eyes.
Using innovative audio-visual technology In My Shoes is an ever-expanding collection of first-person documentary style interactive performances, which guide participants through the beautiful, the challenging, the mundane and the surreal aspects of being human.
Initially conceived to facilitate communications between TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) patients and those who love, live with, and support them, In My Shoes continues to evolve.
The series uses touch, taste, smell, audio-visual technology and first-person documentary to recreate real life experiences which challenge preconceptions, facilitate understanding and enable participants to use what they learn to inform communications and care.
In My Shoes has been performed at The Roundhouse (London), The Basement (Brighton), Battersea Arts Centre (London), The Gulbenkian (Canterbury), City University (London).
