Further Information

Sm@rt looks at the impact of our growing obsession with and reliance on our smart phones and social media on our physical relationships. In a series of linked scenes see how our virtual relationships as engaged in through texts, messaging and social media become more ‘present’ than our real physical relationships with those whom we are in the presence of. The invasion of the virtual into the real. Grace is a happily married woman, but a chance encounter and a subsequent friend request lead to a virtual adventure that is more present than the family she has around her.
The play relies on a simple open staging with minimal props, the focus being on the physical connections between the characters and movement exploring the relationships and disconnections, blurring the lines between who is present and who is not, or more importantly, in the world of smart phone communication and social media relationships, what we mean by present.
Sm@rt makes use of projections of messages, texts, photos and phone screen content. These projections both move the narratives forward and explore the invasiveness of such messages and are synchronised with acting, movement and sound. Projections are being created in association with Reels on Fire Film Production | Norwich,www.reelsonfire.co.uk with original music/soundscapes composed by Paul Thompson (Worldnet Productions)
