Lauren Hart’s This is Mine. What’s Yours? invites you to an intimate encounter and an opportunity for sharing.
This is Mine. What’s yours? 2014 by Lauren Hart of (For) As Long As Love Lasts
A site specific based performance for one audience member at a time. You will be invited to share an intimate moment with a gorilla. There maybe sharing of secrets via notes passed underneath a toilet door, listening to a song that means more than you realise, sharing a cuddle on the sofa to shed the loneliness, confessing over a cup of tea, dancing for the death of a loved one, singing at the top of your voice to a song you can’t remember the words to, daring yourself to reveal more than you planned…

Throughout her professional career she has continued to develop her own particular style of performance making which is where (For) As Long As Love Lasts was born. She works in collaboration with artists and theatre makers to create unique performances. Merging physical theatre, site specific, one to one performance, interactive and immersive theatre using theatre as a tool to create fundamental positive change in society. Along with her collaborators the work they make challenges people to take risks and break down the barriers that can exist in our daily lives. All her work is devised from scratch so each show is unique and tailored made. She likes is to question everything you think you know using different styles to create her vision whenever and wherever she sees fit, merging movement, text and audio together. She is committed to creating work that is accessible to mainstream audiences and encourages people to see the world in a different light. She is passionate and keen to establish a network of like-minded performance makers and collaborators from around the world.
