loops and breaks is an interactive performance set on a solid and simple structure of written actions and triggers. Julia invites you, the audience, to make the action by responding to a series of shifting instructions prepared especially for the particular venue and the crowd of the evening. The stage expands to become a blur of watching and performing, interpretation, intervention, disruption, cooperation and play. Everyone can join the game of finding common ground together, every contribution is precious.

loops and breaks started as a research project in 2012, investigating questions and dynamics around the relationship between performer and audiences. The show has played at various theatres and festivals such as: Tafelhalle Nürnberg, Europäische Theaternacht/Kosmostheater Wien, Tabakfabrik Linz, BE Festival Birmingham, Barbican London, Matadero Madrid, Circomedia Bristol, TraverseTheatre Edinburgh, HomeManchester, Tarragona Festival a.o.
