What’s wrong with reality? Why do we feel the need to escape it?

From its very beginning theatre has offered audiences a chance to escape the world and enter a new one. The phrase “virtual reality” was first used by a playwright, Antonin Artaud, to describe the nature of theatre: a technology which allows us, for one night only, to get out of our heads.

But what happens when theatre stops working? Where do we go next?

To Be A Machine (Version 1.0) meditated on the use of technology to improve the human condition. (Version 2.0) goes further, exploring how virtual reality will soon feel more immersive than reality itself. And that might mean we never have to go to the theatre again.

A VR headset and headphones will be provided and worn throughout the performance.

This performance is not suitable for people who suffer from motion sickness.

As part of this ticket purchasing process you must supply a passport-style photograph of yourself. This is an essential element of the production and of your viewing experience. This photo uploading process requires customers to submit their name, e-mail address, and a photo. This helps us to ensure that the right person has the correct VR experience. Information and photos collected during the upload process will be deleted after the performance.
