I'd Be Lost Without It

  • South Street Arts 21 South Street Reading, England, RG1 4QU United Kingdom (map)

We all exist somewhere online, whether we know it or not: a virtual trace, an online persona, a trail of clicks and searches laying claim to who we are.

I’d Be Lost Without It explores our 21st century addiction to technology, where our hunger for ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ is distancing us from ourselves and one another. In an age when at least 27 hours each week are spent online, I’d Be Lost Without It examines how technology is affecting our minds, our lives, our happiness and our brains.

Using headphones, binaural sound and immersive theatre, Wet Picnic place the audience within an interactive performance that explores cyberpsychology, and the utopia and dystopia of our 21st century, tech-driven existence.

Please note
The audience will each be given a pair of headphones to wear through which they will experience the performance.
This is a standing show, with the audience being moved around the performance space, guided by the performers.
Some of the performance is likely to take place in darkness.
