Mind The Lag

Book here

Welcome Avatar, to your Cortana daily briefing.  
It is a comfortable 23-degrees.
Light and breezy.
A beautiful new beginning. 
What shall we accomplish today?
 

MeatSPACE Theatre presents Mind The Lag, a multisensory performance piece that explores (dis)connection in the digital age, welcoming the dawning of a new era in theatre-making and performance techniques by blurring the origin of the live event.  

Utilising 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 computerised 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. 

Remember, stay true and be free. Meet you in the meatspace!
