Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

the_crash.test

Company: Hijinx in partnership with Wales Millennium Centre, Pontio and Theatr Ffwrnes
Running time: 1h 20min approx

It’s the near future, and tech start-up Figital is on a mission to create the next big thing: the thing we never knew we wanted, but it turns out we all needed. A new thing-a-me-bob. Or Bob for short.

But there’s one problem: it doesn’t quite work yet... and we don’t really know what it is. And we’ve not really thought about the consequences of the technology we are about to release. It’s going to change everything. Let’s get Figital.

A Frankenstein tale for our age, the_crash.test is a darkly playful take on our relationship with technology, incorporating motion capture puppetry, large-scale projection, original composition, with an inclusive cast of performers on stage and via video link, for audiences both in person and online.
