Show listing information
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.
Using headphones, binaural sound and immersive, movement-led 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.
