"Let's Get Figital!"
Itâ€™s the near future, and tech start up Figital are on a mission to create the next big thing, the thing we never knew we wanted, but it turns out we all needed.
A new thing-a-me-bob. Or ‘Bob’ for short.
There's one problem…it doesn't quite work yet.
And we donâ€™t really know what it is. And weâ€™ve not really thought about the consequences of the technology we are about to release. Thereâ€™s one thing we do know, itâ€™s going to change everything. Letâ€™s get Figital!
A Frankenstein tale for our age, the_crash.test is a darkly playful take on our relationship with technology, incorporating motion capture puppetry, large scale projection, original composition, with an inclusive cast of performers on stage and via video link, for audiences both in person and online.Â
Guidance: This production referencesÂ sudden death, and includes several moments of heightened tension. There will be footage of car crashes and explosions, scenes likely to be unsuitable for those with light or sound sensitivities, and the occasional use of strong language.
