The technology of the future is being developed, in part, by very intelligent and/or very well-funded people who believe that death is just a technical glitch and immortality is genuinely possible.
The human being is being upgraded. This is terrifying and exciting and it’s coming – whether we like it or not.
Two of the UK’s most thoughtful, inspiring and consistently brilliant theatre companies come together to imagine the implications of real world, leading edge developments in human enhancement technologies. Working with leading scientists and researchers in the fields of brain implants, smart drugs, and artificial intelligence, Unlimited Theatre and RashDash smash together science fact and fiction in a kaleidoscopic montage of words, music and movement.
The future is coming. Stop being normal.
