300 TAPES

Imagine recording your life on 100 tapes.
Record. Rewind. Play. Listen. Stop.

Three men recorded their lives onto 100 tapes each for this intimate archive of fact and fiction that explores how our memories and identity are shaped (and warped) by time, our own ideas of ourselves and the eyes (and ears) of others.

With a ground breaking sound design, a choreography of our everyday twitches and three performers revealing everything, this bold experiment in storytelling thoughtfully and playfully provokes and questions identity, memory, perception and authenticity.
