    The Roof


    Requardt & Rosenberg

    Set within the suspended reality of a brutal and unforgiving game, this breathless mix of intimate three- dimensional sound and the hairtrigger movement of free running transported a crowd into the body of a reluctant hero, desperate to stay alive. Wearing headphones, audiences were taken right inside this hero’s mind.


    Following Electric Hotel and Motor Show, ‘The Roof’ was the third collaboration between theatre director David Rosenberg (cofounder of Shunt) and choreographer Frauke Requardt.


    Saltbox, the on-site bar, was open nightly, including to non-ticket holders.

    Presented by Fuel in association with the National Theatre. Commissioned by LIFT as part of the Imagine 2020 network, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union. Funded by Arts Council England. Supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, the Backstage Trust and the Binks Trust.
