Nothing is Coming, the Pixels are Huge (presented by NSDF)
Tue 11 April 2017, 21:30 – 22:20 BST
Nothing is Coming, the Pixels are Huge is presented by Lancaster University graduate company Theatre 42.
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 play 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.
This is a dystopian depiction of the increasingly prominent role of technology in our everyday lives.
