About The Salon Project
An Untitled Projects / Traverse Theatre co-production, in collaboration with the Citizens Theatre.
A Salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse and partly to refine taste and increase knowledge of the participants through conversation. Wikipedia
The Salon Project : a new music theatre event inspired by the rituals of the 19th century salon.
Salons were exclusive meetings, where privileged hosts entertained themselves and their ‘little clans’ with cultivated conversation and intimate music recitals.
Astonishing…one of the most complete immersive theatre experiences ever conceived.
Extraordinary, intellectually provocative and tremendously good fun.
A quite extraordinary theatrical experiment…genius.
