Presented by Thomas Martin


Human Basic is the semi-sequel to Thomas Martin’s award-winning story-show  Professional Supervision (or, how Johnny Knoxville’s consciousness travelled from the future to live inside my teenage head). It’s a(nother) story about identity and intimacy in the digital age, but this one has a horse prostitute, eight Nicholas Cages, and unspeakable tricks done with an ethernet cable. A bittersweet, bad-taste journey into the future of sex and the internet. With songs.

So we’ve got three people,
And they’re moving.
I say three people,
I guess what it’s going to look like
We’ve got three figures.
Because they’re,
I’ll go slowly,
One is a shark.

Catch Human Basic in a double bill with REMOTE (7.30pm). Two shows for just £16!
