Five Encounters On A Site Called Craigslist
Desperately hilarious and achingly bleak, award-winning YESYESNONO present an intricate and tender question mark around our attempts to encounter each other in this technologised world
Sam is anxious about the way he gets to know people. About the way he self-sabotages his attempts to communicate and reach out to those around him. Sam wants this to be a chance for you to get to know him.
‘Would someone like to join me up onstage?’
Five Encounters On A Site Called Craigslist is a show performed by one person. One person who needs an audience to tell his story. It’s a show that, in exploring this one person’s self-sabotaged attempts to know those around him, considers the extent to which a group of people in a darkened room can ever get to know each other.

A space in which conventional artistic hierarchies are challenged and audience and artist work together to better understand our world.
