ABOUT THE SHOW
Utilizing international performance spaces and mediated images, a digital avatar is born out of cyberspace and into the meatspace. Can an ‘avatar’ achieve agency outside the computerized world?
As the audience watches these avatars acquire ever more human processing power, will they escape the productivity the matrix demands, or will they discover agency to escape to the unknown? New skin, new muscles, new limbs, a spine and a semi-functional digestive system are not the only things our avatars will discover as they explore captivity, consciousness, and connection.
This show was performed under the Form(at) Festival, that showcases work made by students on ATP (Advanced Theatre Practice) course at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Now in its second year, the Form(at) Festival is embracing 'Performance For The Present' as a theme for this edition, with a hybrid approach to making work in highly dynamic circumstances.
