By Requardt & Rosenberg

An audience assembles in Whitgift Shopping Centre, in the heart of Croydon. A woman with a yellow backpack takes the escalator, the assistant manager drops her keys, and the deputy head of accounts finds them. A couple argue about who did what to whom, and someone, somewhere starts to move.

A seemingly normal day starts to merge with a world of angels and demons, hope and pain.

Experience Whitgift Shopping Centre from a whole new perspective. Using headphones to connect to the soundtrack, audiences become a part of a surreal world that blurs the boundaries between reality and performance.

Super Normal Extra Natural is a new, community-based performance made with the people of Croydon, from the creators of experiential performances Future Cargo and DeadClub™. Dancers and singers are joined by Croydon locals to take over Whitgift Shopping Centre in this unique, intimate and constantly surprising dance spectacle.

Croydon residents can book £1 tickets (normally  £8 full price or £5 concession). You’ll be asked to share your post-code during the booking process to verify your Croydon address

Super Normal Extra Natural is co-Produced by The Place.
Commissioned by London Borough of Culture, The Place and Stanley Arts. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Super Normal Extra Natural is supported by Whitgift Centre.
