This is just the pilot.
Following the pioneering technology of the new hivemind, we follow the stories of six women in their experiences of this new life. Who will thrive and more importantly, who will survive?
SUM depicts characters who have entered this contract to share these minds between them in a much more intimate way than the illusions that our social media now provide. They question concepts that we have accepted since time began – love, birth, war and loss – and still manage to find their own journeys despite the information that has been shared. Who is the pioneer of the technology? Who will use it for good (whatever that means in this reality), and who will use it to further their own ends? Should everyone be able to connect?
Performed at The Etcetera theatre as part of the Camden Fringe Festival.
