by Victoria Chen
A 15-minute one-on-one experience in which the audience member leaves their belonging at the door with an usher and enters a sterile bedroom.
Conceived in response to the huge political changes in 2016, Vic takes on the persona of Charlie, who has spent the majority of her life in a room. Charlie has been brought up to believe that there is danger beyond her room, and that the world has made a sacrifice for her to remain safe in her room. She does not know what the danger is, for the professor never tells, but she knows the time is coming for her to meet the world.
If your words were the only thing a little girl could hang on to in this maddening world, what would you say to her?

“Whatever one might want to call it – play, interactive game, parallel reality –
‘Charlie’ opened a series of interrogatives in me I am still trying to answer,
pushing the boundaries of theatre towards a completely unexpected direction
and undoubtedly offering a once in a lifetime experience
I am extremely glad to have had.”
