Upload/Unplug

Do you use a mobile phone or computer every day? How much personal data do you give away each day to navigate your digital life? Could you unplug, even if you wanted to? Digital dance company Pell Ensemble invites you into the world of EPOQ: A live gaming experience where your choices become data, uploaded to shape a new human being. On entering the space you will meet David, ready to be brought to life by your data. From the safety of your seat and through a custom built app on a mobile device, your every tap, swipe and swirl will inform who David becomes. Through your input David experiences the joy, fear and complexity of being human. But at what cost – will your data be put to good use? And what happens to it once the experience is over?

Upload or unplug – it’s your choice.
