Binaural Dinner Date

Hopeful singletons and curious couples are invited to try out an experiential dating experience.


Leading immersive and digital performance innovators ZU-UK will use binaural sound for the unique date.

At the Binaural Dinner Date, participants will be guided by a voice in their ears to ask each other questions, offer answers, and consider the dos and don’ts of what we say, and what we would like to say, to each other on a date.

Held at the People’s Production Lab in Cannon Street and Guildhall Street, the large event space will be transformed into a lush romantic setting, featuring a disco floor and mirror ball, to explore the failure of verbal language.

It will take place at nine tables simultaneously, with two participants per table who will be hosted by a waiter, facilitator, DJ and interactively mixed binaural audio with suggestions and comments on dating ‘rules’, as well as games.

Jorge Lopes Ramos, ZU-UK’s Co-Artistic Director said: “ZU-UK’s artistic work has never shied away from engaging with urgent, problematic and at times depressing aspects of the contemporary human condition.

“This is a time to question mainstream narratives and to consider our role in shaping communities and relationships between strangers. Dating seemed like a contemporary human ritual worth exploring!”

The dates will take place on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 March with 6pm and 7.30pm time slots available.

Tickets are prices at £10 and can be purchased online.
