Vault Festival 2016: Invisible City
A physical, funny, moving tale of modern loneliness and lemons
London's biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. On a dark stage, in a rush of sound, Marie arrives: grinning, and full of excitement and eager to make her mark. What follows is a unique, modern take on being a fish-out-of-water. Through humour, movement, speech and song, we see Marie’s enthusiasm battered by passive aggressive supermarket checkouts, difficult job interviews and nagging phone calls from her mum. Then one day, a voice in the supermarket fruit aisle seems to strike up conversation...could this be the connection Marie was waiting for? Show takes place in the Forge space. Running time is approximately 50 minutes. The venue entrance is in a graffiti tunnel under Waterloo and can be a bit tricky to find, so give yourself good time to get there.
"Sweetly inventive and brazenly original."
