  • Cast and creatives
  • Venue details
A theatrical exploration of the body, this intimate performance uses pervasive media and a diverse cast of dolls to consider what it is to be alive and human.  

Two charismatic performers, live sound and video design animate a series of compelling, communal interactions. Seated in a small group, the experience can only begin when you have all attached your heart-rate monitors. 

The winner of this year’s Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust award is a bold, intriguing work full of visual surprises, a ‘paean to life in all its dark beauty and complexity’ .

Ages 16+

Barbican [Off West End]

“Bold in its rejection of story and embrace of technology... A strange yet extraordinary experience. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“A playfully bold and off-kilter anatomy of the ridiculousness, sadness and beauty of human life ”

Tom Wicker (Time Out, The Stage, Telegraph)

“High-tech, messy, and impenetrable...Fantastically creepy, shifting installations... Plenty to get the pulse racing. ”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Playful piece merging live art and live performance, which tries to involve the audience in its often unfocused musings. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)
