Using smartphones, the audience is invited to play the dual role of voyeur and accomplice in an audio-guided, experiential tour of the city. Each audience member is partnered through text messaging with a fellow participant in Reykjavík, Iceland. As the experience unfolds, individuals are prompted simultaneously to share stories, memories, and secrets. There are also moments in which they act out choreography they imagine doing together. The project largely takes place outside in the city using the urban landscape as backdrop for the relationship forming between two strangers. LANDLINE offers participants a curious exposure to the feeling of being alone together.

LANDLINE was first presented between Vancouver and Halifax in the fall of 2013. It has also presented in Dartmouth, Ottawa, and most recently at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, Wales. The project was developed with support from Neworld Theatre and Secret Theatre in collaboration with the Canada's National Arts Centre.
