This ground-breaking web app also enables audience members to confidentially share identity-forming moments of their lives during the show which are merged seamlessly with DeepBlue's immersive visuals.
'Who Are You' has toured to South Australia and Western Australia and DeepBlue look forward to bringing it to regional Queensland where they've built an audience through shows performed in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
