Theatre Ad Infinitum presents a dystopian future inspired by Edward Snowden’s surveillance revelations where implants connect brains to cyberspace and governments secretly infiltrate citizens’ minds. Intense darkness, torchlight, graphic novel/anime inspired visuals, physical storytelling, and a stunning soundscape fuse to tell a story of love, betrayal, and technological power.
