March 2010, Great Northern Way Warehouse
Neworld’s piece, Frisked, examined the idea of technology, intimacy and security. The audience was instructed how to perform a proper body search, to perform a “frisk,” and then they were guided through the process of approaching another audience member, usually a stranger. Everyone was outfitted with an FM receiver and headphones, and instructions were given over FM narrowcast.
Frisked creators Adrienne Wong and Paulo Ribeiro / Performed by Catherine Ballachey, Pedro Chamale, Paulo Ribeiro / Design and Stage Management Stacy Sherlock
