Between us, we know everything….
PO Box 573

Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. We make original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people who are in it. Whatever form it takes, our work begins and ends with the people in the room. Over the last 20 years, we've collaborated with a shifting constellation of artists, performers and people who've never done anything like this before. Our work seeks to create the circumstances for a conversation between strangers...

Between us, we know everything….

2010 marked the last print edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica: in 25 years, the web has replaced a 246-year old resource.

Between us, we know everything…. seeks to capture what we know, everything we know, anything we know. It’s about all the useful and useless information we’ve acquired over the course of our lives. It’s about putting faces to the facts, and bringing people into the story – making a huge online map of knowledge.  

Quarantine invites you to make your contribution. Visit the mobile video studio to film a piece of information that you want to share with the world. We’ll film you sharing your knowledge, and upload it to a dedicated website. What do you know?
