Drowning is a series of short audio plays exploring computational control and digital power.
Hidden behind ones and zeros, a digital revolution is creating an automated society where our lives are increasingly guided by computer algorithms. These mathematical formulas supply us 24/7 with a smooth reality; filtering our Internet searches, matching us with partners through online dating, making stock market transactions, mapping our movements to offer the quickest route, diagnosing our illnesses, predicting our desires while searching for signs of suspicious behaviour. But what happens when the systems we depend on begin to rule our lives?
Supported by Curve Theatre, Birmingham University and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Written by Amanda Fromell, the series was recorded between 2017 and 2018 at Leicester Curve Theatre and was presented in festivals in London, Leicester and Dundee as part of an immersive installation. Featuring: Kirsty Marie Ayers, Katie Burchett, Shea Hall, Tina Harris, Craig Henry, Jenny Hibberd, Alex Lloyd, Drew McKenzie, Sarah Northgraves, Edward Spence, and Sue Whyte
GOING OUT | GOING IN is an audio performance for headphones and a solo journey through an urban landscape. From an audio track downloaded to a smartphone, the performance asks the listener to put on headphones and take a journey through their local area. With gentle, spoken instructions and an original soundtrack of ambient music, the listener is invited to slow down, observe the streets and buildings around them and be guided by their curiosity on a journey through their city or town.
GOING OUT | GOING IN contemplates the built environments we inhabit and the ways they move us. Audience
