Why Riptide?

 [rɪp-taɪd] noun.

Riptides are hidden, dangerous currents of water that pull you out to sea. A powerful force pulls audience members along, as they journey through our secret spaces and fragmented narratives.

Riptides are unpredictable and can emerge at random locations, it is only when you are in the riptide that you know that it is there. Most of our performances occur in public spaces, passers-by may be oblivious to the fact you are caught in the riptide.

The riptide is the suspense before the performance, it is the audience's journey, it is the force that opens the door, it is the spaces you travel through, it is the unsaid lines, it is the feeling you are left with.
