Part of Co:LAB Festival 2019. Created by the Royal Exchange Theatre's Open Exchange.

A multidimensional sonic experience

We live in a ten-dimensional multiverse — with only three dimensions visible to us.

According to String Theory, our universe is connected to billions of alternate realities. What if we could hear, feel or breathe the other dimensions? String Lines is an immersive experience where the audience takes control of conducting the universe around them.

Formed as part of Open Exchange's opportunity REACT at Royal Exchange Theatre, fantastical theatre duo TomYumSim (Tom Halls & Simone French) collaborate with electronic artists Joshua Ward and Rhys Sumner to tear apart the construct of musical theatre and reassemble it with electronic vibrating particles.

  • VENUE: The Studio

    PERFORMANCE DATE & TIME: Saturday 22 June, 6.00pm & 7.00pm

    TICKETS: All Co:LAB shows are Pay What You Decide. 

    Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not. Tickets will be free and available to book in advance as usual. There is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show.

    You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience and pay cash on the door.

    Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats.

    BOOK NOW: Online or via the Box Office on 0161 833 9833

    CONTENT WARNINGS: Interactive Performance, Loud Noises. For more information please contact  grace.ng-ralph@royalexchange.co.uk  and we can answer any queries case by case.
