In this uncanny graveyard of pixelated memories, this imagined future seems all too close for comfort…
Using two projectors and 250 cardboard boxes, five actors construct and live out fragments of 1,000 different lives. Rummaging through the building blocks of their existence, they recall and recreate them with the only material at their disposal – pixels. In this visually compelling piece of contemporary storytelling, the characters wade through their memories, forget who they are and remember what it is to be human.
Promising recent Lancaster University graduate company Theatre 42 presents a dystopian depiction of the increasingly prominent role of technology in our everyday lives.
This piece is being developed with support from Lancaster Arts and Making Room’s emerging artists development programmes.
