Olfactory is a 7 minute one-on-one experience exploring the history of perfume interwoven with perfumes created to capture the present ‘moment.’
It takes place in a specially designed performance space, reflecting it’s surrounding environment.
Made as a co-commission between the Lyric Hammersmith, Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, Imagine Watford and Latitude Festival.
“But it was in Curious Directive’s Olfactory that I found Latitude slipping away entirely. Just seven minutes long, this blissful one-on-one piece invited you to smell different scents and explore the history of perfume; a small, delicate experience, its scent and atmosphere lingered long after it had finished.” The Guardian
