Hijinx presents...

It’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 don’t really know what it is. And we’ve not really thought about the consequences of the technology we are about to release. It’s going to change everything. Let’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.

the_crash.test is a production that is designed to be enjoyed and interacted with by an audience either in person or online, that will be performed by a cast both via their own homes and in person on stage. Please select whether you would like to book an in-person ticket with the Wales Millennium Centre, Pontio, Ffrwnes, or an online ticket.

If you select an online ticket, you will be taken to our ticketsource page to complete the booking and a link to the performance will be sent to you closer to the time.

If you have any ticketing queries about the online event leading up or during the performance, please email:

the_crash.test has been generously supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Ty Cerdd and the Colwinston Charitable Trust.
