Sans Hotel

Hello My Name Is

Hello my name is is a performance about getting to know yourself and strangers. Created by Nicola Gunn and award-winning company Sans Hotel, this startlingly original show is warm like a spring day and unexpectedly fun like a game of table tennis.

It is set in a community centre, which is just a room we call a community centre, and the audience are cast as workshop participants. Hello my name is is a beautifully chaotic, joyous and uplifting event that reminds us how to engage with and celebrate the act of living (and conga lines).

Hello my name is leaves no space to hide in the dark, but don’t be scared of the light because this hilarious, confronting, beautiful and weird show will leave you smiling and feeling so much better for the experience” – Aussie Theatre
