Inspired by the eponymous internet ‘creepypasta’, The Backrooms is a carefully choreographed, intertexual performance, set in a mysterious liminal space; an alternate to the everyday, accessible only through the cracks in reality.
Labyrinthine walls shift to become ephemeral windows, two-way mirrors and unreachable exits. Bodies mutate. Language gets lost in translation. Devised by a 20-strong ensemble cast of 1st-year theatre makers, this piece interrogates anxiety and identity, (sur)reality, temporality and a longing for escape.
