“Even your words are disappearing. I only have a handful left.”

Civil war breaks out in the U.S. Snipers patrol the rooftops; militias are targeting newsrooms. A journalist escapes on a cruise ship & finds herself in Belfast. The press are keen to talk to the stowaway, but anything she says will put her friends in danger. Told via phone messages to her lover back home, STOWAWAY CITY traces her story as she weighs the consequences of speaking out. In this immersive audio play, listeners will be free to explore a 360° virtual soundscape of Belfast in the Sonic Lab at SARC. The narrative unfolds as you move through the space, navigating the story and the city with your ears only.

*Note on visiting the Sonic Lab: Please wear flat, comfortable shoes with a reasonably thick sole. This is because the floor is a metal grid that allows sound to come from the basement.
