A unique theatrical experience: 0501

Yesterday, I caught 0501, a site-specific play at the Victoria Theatre with my friend, Mystic. Instead of sitting on the audience seats of the Victoria Theatre, I have found myself sitting on the stage, and it turned out to be indeed a unique and interesting experience for me last night.

Here's the synopsis of 0501:
A site-specific play on the stage of Victoria Theatre, audiences sit on the cavernous stage as each performer/designer tells his/her tale. This visceral performance fuses lights, sound, storytelling, installation and object puppetry into a unifying experience that is as provocative as it is inspiring. Don't miss this unique theatrical experience as only 200 tickets are available for each night. (view source)

To gain more insights to this production, I am now reading the notes that the performers have put up on the 0501 website:
