Q Theatre and Auckland Fringe present:


By Andy Field

A one-to-one encounter high up overlooking our city. Making its international debut from Britain in the Auckland Fringe Festival 2017, Q Theatre presents Lookout – an intimate encounter between an audience member and a performer.

Lookout is created by London artist, curator and writer Andy Field who specialises in creating encounters between strangers in a variety of locations inviting us to re-consider our relationship to each other and the world we inhabit.

In a collaboration with children from a local Auckland primary school and developed through a series of workshops with the students, this season of Lookout is unique to Auckland and the people who call Tamaki Makaurau home.

Look out at Auckland with your local school performer and imagine its future. Share a quiet conversation that journeys through the past, present and future guided by the streets and landmarks laid out before you.

Through dreams of utopian architecture and possible catastrophes, hopes and fears, future fashions, proposed demolitions and progress real and imagined, explore two very different versions of the city you are in.

Lookout is a chance to engage with someone in our city who you might not normally meet, about a future world you may or may not share.

Lookout is an opportunity to consider big questions in a small way.

Presented by Q Theatre, Auckland Season supported by Auckland Council and the British Council. Lookout was originally commissioned by The Arches, caravan, MAYK, Cambridge Junction, Contact, and Unicorn Theatre. Supported by Arts Council England.
