REMOTE

Sun 1st Oct - Sun 1st Oct

Devised by Coney “Hello. We’re delighted you could join us. We’d like to recognise that; we’d like to say hello. We are REMOTE. We are here to help you be more like people like you.” Imagine you’re in a theatre of the future, powered by an algorithm. REMOTE is an interactive live game interrogating the politics of choice, and decision-making in an immaterial world, saturated with technology. This is a piece of game-theatre that you play sitting down, and its entirely led by you, the audience. As well as just being yourselves – you are also, together, playing a character, and you’ll be asked to make choices for her. Fusing an interactive script with a live and responsive sound design – REMOTE is a mechanical theatre game. It’s 2017, and we’re a room full of mostly strangers, imagining the future. This performance is part of POP OUT Festival 2018 – Art Outside The Ordinary Start Time: 2pm Tickets: Free (Advanced Booking Recommended) Location: Pop Out Theatre – Waterside Shopping Centre REMOTE was originally commissioned by Theatre in the Mill, supported by Camden People’s Theatre and developed through scratch and residency at CPT, BAC, MAKE Ireland, University of Exeter, and Theatre

GOGGLES
