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

APOLLO 11 DEN

Fri 29th Sep - Sat 30th Sep

Tom Adams It’s July 1969. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins are on board the Apollo 11 spacecraft. Two of them are destined to be the most famous men on the planet. You are about to meet the third. Michael Collins is on a mission all of his own. Whilst Neil and Buzz muck about moonwalking, Michael has a serious job to do. For 60 minutes, he will visit the dark side of the moon, out of radio contact with the rest of humanity. 60 minutes of utter solitude. 60 minutes to think about home. 60 minutes to examine the nature of existence. And all through the medium of some really catchy tines. And a bit of puppetry. Mike’s Apollo 11 Den is a rocket-fuelled display of musicianship, theatre and comedy. Exclusively for Pop Out the show is taking place in the original camper van that started it all. This van is a beat-making, bass-shaking, electro-funk-machine and countdown is about to commence Start Time: Friday 29 September 2pm, 4.30pm & 7.30pm, Saturday 30 September 2pm, 4pm & 6.30pm Tickets: £5 all tickets (limited capacity) Running Time: 1 Hour (no interval) Location: Apollo 11 Den outside Lincoln Performing Arts Centre*
