Dante Or Die: Handle With Care
A site-specific journey of one woman and her stuff through a lifetime in self-storage
“Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things” – Schopenhauer Handle With Care is an immersive new play about the things we hold onto, their value and how they tell our individual stories. Through an intimately personal, fly-on-the-wall experience in Urban Locker’s self-storage building, the show studies how we accumulate objects, the meaning that we place on those seemingly banal belongings and how they can give us a sense of home. Join Zoe from 1988 to the present as she stores and stores and stores as the years go on and on and on. After meeting at the Draft House, the audience will be led to Urban Locker, just off Old Street, where the performance will be taking place.
"Profoundly moving and something rarely experienced watching theatre in more conventional spaces. If you only see one show this year I strongly recommend you make sure that it is this one.”
