The Assignment

A new work in progress show from Cap-a-Pie.

The Assignment takes you on a journey into your city, where you will uncover stories from just around the corner and from the other side of the world.

The show is about the global and the local, and how they come together in cities. Cap-a-Pie has been working with researcher Dr Matt Davies to make the show. Matt’s been looking at how spectacular global events like the Olympics and The World Cup have affected the local experiences of people living in Rio de Janeiro.

Drawing on Matt’s research, Cap-a-Pie will take you out into your city to see it with new eyes. Through this playful, fun and intimate show, you will go on an adventure to find the invisible forces from all over the globe that affect your life, and how you live within your city.

Audience Feedback

“I really LOVED how mindful the experience was. I also loved watching/observing the city, stepping back from it and taking my own journey which did not involve running from one place to the other”
