Dead Centre and Dublin Theatre Festival, Ireland

To Be a Machine (Version 1.0)

by Dead Centre & Mark O’Connell

An early release of a future project from Dead Centre. Adapted from the Wellcome Prize-winning book by Mark O’Connell, this event attempts to re-imagine theatre without the hindrance of the body.

Be the best audience member you can be by uploading yourself into the crowd for this exploration of technology, the race to defeat death, and the limits of live performance. Featuring Jack Gleeson trying to be or not to be a machine.
