Dante or Die Logo

I do

A site-specific jigsaw puzzle through 6 hotel rooms just before the deed is done…
Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall in the build up to a wedding?.

The ceremony begins in ten minutes. The Best Man is practicing his speech. The Bridesmaids are squeezing the bride into her dress. Mum and Dad are seeing each other for the first time in years. Grandma is struggling to dress her husband whilst the bride’s brother is getting frisky with the maid of honour. Meanwhile, the Groom is frozen…

Don your button-hole, down a glass of bubbly and join Dante or Die’s twelve-strong cast to voyeuristically peek into the lives of a wedding party as the big moment looms nearer. Divided into six groups, you will discover the twists and turn in the plot in a different order, seeing the same ten minutes replayed in each of the rooms, where you will experience that moment in time from each character’s point of view.
