Like boarded up windows,
like stone steps,
like the sound of voices from a far away room,
like the smell of burning,
like the way that condensation forms on windows,
like searching for something,
like searching through rooms.

 – Tim Etchells

Shown and Told is a dynamic performance-collage founded on structured improvisation and associative leaps.
