In a faraway motel, eyes in the mirror send shivers down your spine. Nosey neighbours peer through windows from houses on different streets. A haunting tale of souls bound by what they don’t see. Maeve talks to spirits, Nettie talks to strangers, Henry talks to himself as they’re Passing Notes.

Stick Stick Stuck

Created and Performed by Nicolas H Noguera

A young man arrives in the new level of some grand game. There are a bunch of sticks. There is a goal, but they aren’t sure what to do, and time is running out. They balance, they dance, they flip, they experiment, they create. They try their best to get out of this new level. But it seems they are stuck.
