#//EMBEDDED//# is a multimedia piece of devised theatre that examines the condition of a trapped virtual identity through the lens of a cyber celebrity stuck within the regulating algorithms of a social media platform, inside a broadcasting room floating somewhere in the inter-webs of cyber space and time.
An introspection on notions of identity and image, reality and perception, our need for real connection and inclusion coupled with our inability to disconnect our selves from the virtual world (and our virtual identities in it)
A revolt against all identities that trap us - of race, color, gender, class, religion, nationality etc that we build or are systematically imposed upon us to create walls that divide, separate, exclude, regulate and restrict us from real connection and access to our selves and each other.

"For anyone concerned with humankind’s
increasing overlap with, and dependence on,
this is must-see theatre"
