About the event

A story about managing expectations.
Produced by Woman's Move
Presented by The Cockpit

'The Sensemaker' shows a woman battling with an answering machine, trying to meet the impossible expectations of an artificial voice.
Critical of new technologies as well as of bureaucracy, this one-woman show mixes dance, theatre, and even lip-synching, and addresses with irony the fears and frustrations of our interconnected world.

Hilarious yet uncomfortable, 'The Sensemaker' questions our capacities to resist an unjust authority.

'An episode of 'Black Mirror' live on stage.' WEST END PENGUINS
