In two different cities, in two different places, one story is told.

Otis and Eunice are in love. He can play music that charms birds out of trees, while her extraordinary strength is legendary. On a bright summer’s morning the carnival comes to town and, through the colour and the excitement, Eunice goes missing…

Otis and Eunice is a multi-location theatrical performance where six music, dance and drama institutions create a specially commissioned show curated by immersive theatre makers Raucous. Two audiences see the same story at the same time in two different cities, Bristol and London, but from two contrasting character viewpoints. Evocative and immersive, Otis and Eunice is a unique creative collaboration, resulting in a fresh and bold new approach to making theatre stories.

This event is the culmination of the four-year Virtual Conservatoire project between six institutions, which aims to reimagine conservatoire training for the digital age.
