AUTOMATION (click for pdf)
A script for a staged monologue about obsolescence that myself and Zoe Williams collaborated on last year. Where work is increasingly without any meaning this text attempts to find a connection in the telegraph lines that intersect between places, joining up across times and across identities- a common experience.
The play itself was for an ‘immersive’ theatre form. The audience were offered the ability to switch between times and in the interplay between many already fragmented subjects, new texts were created by chance.
Performed by the dynamic Sarah Ratheram at short notice she understood our intentions immediately, and made the most of the many interplays the characters could produce.
