Binaural Dinner Date at The Lowry, Salford 28 — 30 March 2019 Tickets from £14.00 — Book now

Following sold-out London performances, performance makers ZU-UK bring their interactive performance Binaural Dinner Date to The Lowry.

Binaural Dinner Date is part interactive performance, part dating agency – inviting genuine applications from people who are looking for love, or existing couples who want to sample a very different dating experience.

part interactive performance, part dating agency

Is the art of conversation dying in this swipe left and swipe right culture? Are people too busy to spend time getting to know a new person? Cleverly, Binaural Dinner Date tries to manipulate willing audience members into giving their hearts away through good old-fashioned conversation and instruction delivered via headphones.

Using audio prompts – questions, instructions, games and lots of eye contact ( no spoilers here), and a waiter and a chef to guide you – what’s the worst that could happen?
