Are things really as they seem in Cardiff’s bustling city centre?
Beneath a veneer of respectability, Cardiff traders hide a secret. A dark and sinister underworld is thriving below their pleasant shop fronts, revealed only to those who dare to follow.
Hijinx and Punchdrunk Enrichment invite you to uncover the city’s secrets in our upcoming site-sympathetic theatre event, Beneath the streets. Come with us to a secret location within the city centre, steeped in history and invisible to passers-by. Beneath the streets is a completely different experience of theatre, where you are free to roam through the performance space encountering characters and uncovering a story as the action takes place all around you. It is the exciting culmination of a two-week training course, hosted by Hijinx and led by Punchdrunk Enrichment, delving into Punchdrunk’s immersive theatre practice.
The result is a performance that is rooted in its mysterious location, led by a cast of 25 artists and members of the Hijinx Academy, our professional training course for actors with learning disabilities.
A limited number of tickets are available for each performance due to its unique setting, so early booking is essential. Beneath the streets takes place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June at 18.30, 19.10, 20.10 and 20.50 in Cardiff city centre. Tickets are £5 and are available via Chapter Arts Centre’s website or by calling Chapter on 029 2030 4400.
If you are a wheelchair user please book by telephone. The secret location will be revealed at the time of booking.
