Crying rooms are the small, soundproof chambers at the back of theatre auditoriums and churches where a person can experience an event via one-way glass and live audio feed without disrupting the congregation.
As audience members in 2020, are we not now relegated to the privacy of our own isolated viewing chambers - our very own crying rooms? But what if a crying room was actually a space dedicated to emotionality? A place not to conceal tears, but to invoke them?
A deeply personal and form-breaking work by Marcus Ian McKenzie about cataclysmic events and the transformation that becomes of them.
