Give It A Name are casting for our next production.

It’s been 3 years in technical development, but now we are ready to sail. 300 years after its publication, we revisit the first novel in the English language.

Robinson: The Other Island

A binaural theatre piece about Robinson Crusoe, the island, solitude, and the act of reading. Part theatre, part radio play, part ASMR experience, the text is adapted from Daniel Defoe and Michel Tournier, and will be directed by Mathilde Lopez.
