Description With User Not Found, BAM goes off-site and site-specific, in a new production by London’s lauded theater group Dante or Die. It is an immersive play exploring what happens to our digital identities after we die. Performed in cafés to authentically examine the public/private divide inherent in screen technology, User Not Found supplies audience members with a smartphone and headphones. The phones are all synced so that audience members can view the protagonist’s own private phone experience. This technology was created by digital design
company Marmelo in a unique creative collaboration between theater and technology. The narrative unfolds through a script by Chris Goode, an evocative new score by Yaniv Fridel, immersive lighting and set design by Zia Bergin-Holly, and Dante or Die’s trademark intimate style of location-based storytelling. User Not Found explores the ethics of digital ownership as well as privacy.
