Wondermart is a unique, interactive audio tour that takes you on a journey of rediscovery through the familiar surroundings of the supermarket. Wearing headphones and anonymous behind your trolley, you are guided around the aisles immersed in a private soundscape. The real blurs with the imaginary, and the every day setting of the ‘high density retail environment’ becomes the scene of strange adventures.
By turns amusing, moving and strangely entrancing, Wondermart gives the audience freedom within a carefully scripted audio-tour to inhabit the commercial setting for decidedly NON commercial reasons.
“Wondermart (…) succeeds, like the best of theatre, in shining a new light on the quotidian of human experience”
The Irish Times
“a delicious anti-consumerist meditation through the dream state of aisles… a quirkily situationist amble”
