Hello. Were delighted you could join us. Wed like to recognise that; wed like to say hello.
We are REMOTE. We are here to help you be more like people like you.
Imagine youre 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 its entirely led by you, the audience. As well as just being yourselves you are also, together, playing a character, and youll 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 were a room full of mostly strangers, imagining the future.
REMOTE is commissioned by Theatre in the Mill and funded by 89 warm and generous Kickstarter backers. The show has been further supported by Camden Peoples Theatre, and developed through scratch and residency at Camden Peoples Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, MAKE Ireland, Beta Public, University of Exeter, and Theatre in the Mill.
???? ‘Clever and intriguing – interactive fiction exploring small politics, big algorithms and thwarted consensus’
???? ‘This is immersive theatre, but not as you know it
here the entire audience make decisions that will shape the plays narrative.’
‘Theatre like this is important, in fact crucial, in reminding us that our vote can count
It is pertinent and playful; watch it if you want to be engaged.’
‘Coney highlight the politics of choice, the limits of free will and the feeling of being implicated in everything that happens
this kind of theatre highlights liveness.’
