A mechanical theatre game, fusing an interactive script with a live and responsive sound design.
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 it’s 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.
