Daniel Bye, Palm Reading

About the work

Two people meet in person for the first time since lockdown.

One of the people is played by you.

The other is played by someone you’ve never met.

Palm Reading is a live online performance encounter for you and a stranger. Meeting one another for the first time through this script, you’ll experience closeness and distance in a whole new set of ways.

To experience Palm Reading, you’ll need to find a partner. You could ask around via your own social media, or you could find someone through the comments on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter . Then just download the document, and make sure you read the instructions a few hours in advance.
