It’s the moment of your death.There’s a magic button. Do you delete your entire online legacy? Or do you keep it – and leave the choice for someone else? Dante or Die has joined forces with writer Chris Goode to examine what happens to our digital identities after we die in User Not Found.
In a special highlight of our new season Ventnor Exchange is thrilled to be bringing this unique experience to the Isle of Wight.
USER NOT FOUND is about our digital identities after we die. This play has been created by celebrated site-specific company Dante or Die in collaboration with pioneering writer Chris Goode and creative technologists Marmelo. Performed in the Ventnor Exchange in it’s normal cafe layout, audience members receive a smartphone and a pair of headphones and are immersed in one man’s story as he’s faced with keeping or deleting his partner’s online existence. A story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate, funny performance that gently interrogates our need for connection.
