David Farr's new play is both a science fiction and an intimate study of loss and bereavement.
“When they called saying your body had been found, I had one immediate thought.
I remember thinking that maybe now I'd be free.”
A daughter travels to the New Mexico desert on hearing that her mother has died there.
But has she?
Loosely inspired by Adam Curtis' documentary The Century of the Self, A Dead Body in Taos explores what developments in artificial intelligence might mean for our understanding of death, consciousness and the soul.
