Hotel Esplanade, 11 The Esplanade, St Kilda VIC 3182, Australia Arrow

Get lost in conversation on the balcony of the ESPY Hotel Monday to Thursday nights during Melbourne Fringe as host Glenn Manton guides you through some frank and illuminating discussions.

Just select ‘flight mode’ and prepare yourself for a journey back to the real world.
It’ll be provocative, memorable and funny too.
Come alone or bring a friend/s, and remember what it felt like to look someone in the eye rather than stare at a screen.
Put the tech away and discuss some big questions…and some not so big.

Think. Be sincere. Be authentic.

Does more money equal more problems? Who was your first crush? What is failure? Will technology be the death of us all?
Storytelling will never die. But the battery on your phone will.

We all have history and great stories that should be shared.
Forget about what’s happening on Instagram or Facebook and go old school!
Sometimes you have to disconnect to reconnect.

Warning: Contains mild coarse language, high level of audience participation, potentially triggering content or themes, including Death,Mental Health
