In collaboration with London South Bank University
Please note, this is a work in progress performance

Welcome to One State, where freedom is conformity, names are numbers, and relationships are determined by compatibility norms. Aeronautical engineer D-503 is torn between his faith in the Benefactor, the AI designed to eliminate conflict, and an archaeologist with unsettling ideas. Can he save his relationship, his friends, his spaceship and his faith in One State?

Before 1984, before Brave New World, there was WE. Zamiatin’s novel, written in 1919, was the first to be banned by the Soviet authorities. His imaginative rumination on the nature of happiness is a thoughtful, provocative and moving satire, as challenging and stimulating today as it was then.

SET stages this integrated media performance of WE calling on music, dance, colour, light, visual spectacle, technical wizardry and innovative interfaces combined with traditional theatre skills.
