This article explores the co-participation of performer and audience in a durational site-specific performance. 'Weekly Ticket Footscray' is a fifteen- year performance at Footscray Train Station, Melbourne. Starting in February 2016 and continuing until 2031, performer David Wells and myself as performance director create a weekly, two-hour improvised performance. 'Weekly Ticket Footscray' provides a unique opportunity to provoke new understandings of a contemporary performance outside of traditional venues, conventional audiences and familiar time frames. This article uses the frameworks of 'slow theatre', 'proxemics', and artistic and theoretical understandings of the power of conversation to interrogate notions of the relations created by performance.
