‘One of Us’ takes the form of a low-key game show, for one player at a time (and any incidental audience) where LOW PROFILE invite those playing / watching to decide which of a set of given statements belong to which performer. The statements are partly confessional, partly personal, partly banal and all very everyday.
The performance is to some extent to do with what/how much you reveal and what/how much you hide. It echoes the way we create and re-create our identities by telling and re-telling our stories.
The performance asks the audience to take positions, to judge the performers solely on the statements provided and as the people they see standing in front of them – contributing to the creation of reading and meanings in the work.
