Why has Time Out chosen Dante or Die’s User Not Found as one of its Top Theatre Picks for May? The raves that Time Out‘s Andrzej Lukowski and so many other critics gave the show when it was first seen at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe gives a strong indication. We’ve rounded up our favourite review highlights below. The two-week-only London run begins this Friday – time to get booking!
User Not Found, which examines what happens to our digital identities after we die, runs at The CoffeeWorks Project next to Battersea Power Station from 17 May to 2 June 2019, in partnership with Nine Elms on the South Bank, in association with Battersea Arts Centre. Created by site-specific specialists Dante or Die, this ground-breaking theatrical experience is written by Chris Goode, directed by Daphna Attias and performed by Terry O’Donovan.
It’s the moment of your death.
There’s a magic button.
Do you delete your entire online legacy?
Or do you keep it – and leave the choice for someone else?
Terry and Luka were together for nine years until Luka left Terry. Then Luka died leaving Terry as his online legacy executor.
Through smartphones and headphones, the audience is immersed in one man’s story as he is faced with keeping or deleting. In a rapidly changing digital age, a story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate, funny performance that gently interrogates our need for connection and the fate of our digital afterlives.
User Not Found runs from 17 May to 2 June 2019 at The CoffeeWorks Project, Circus West Village, Road West, Battersea, London SW11 8EZ, with performances at various times. Tickets are priced £15-£20. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
