Why do we come together in the theatre? To laugh? To be moved? To discover a story? Or, more trivially, to get value for money? If there is a recipe for a show, what ingredients will the audience put forward?
Trân Tran, ever the professional performer, tries to fulfil the stated expectation of their audience, through this witty interactive show of possibilities, it’s never the same show twice! Not short of ideas or props, Trân Tran’s actions create a constant state of shifting – a funny step to the side and suddenly you find yourself in a moment of poignant reflection.
Here & Now mischievously re-examines the pact between audience and performer and celebrates the beautiful ‘here and now’ of live theatre.
Trân Tran is a Swiss artist whose work explores the fundamentals of human connection and the drive to be connected through art.
Trân Tran was introduced to HOME through the Swiss Selection Edinburgh programme when they undertook a week-long digital residency in 2020. HOME are delighted to continue to support Trân’s work here in the UK, along with the ongoing support of Pro Helvetia and the Swiss Selection Edinburgh programme.
