    Access Auslan-interpreted performance 13 May 2pm

Dinner party drama turns tech-rave apocalypse.

David Jones values a full-time job and a gym membership, and is having an a air with Clare Martin. Maree prefers to do her shopping online and has a drinking problem. Jimmy has just returned from the other side. Sarah is a mute teen goth who likes welding. This performance will start in a living room and end in the deepest reaches of the black hole that is the internet. #yolo

This poetically absurd modern drama takes our most familiar truths and our most popular aspirations to a level of strangeness beyond comprehension – a point of no return. Gillies leads a team of stellar performers through an algorithm to understand the increasing role predictive technologies play in our day-to-day lives.
