“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

★★★★ “Remote is clever and intriguing – interactive fiction exploring small politics, big algorithms and thwarted consensus"
