James McDermott and Guildhall Live Events
This new multi-modal play, available to watch online, is a timely exploration of love, longing and the challenges of communicating how we really feel. Fusing traditional stagecraft and live theatre with unprecedented use of state-of-the-art immersive film-making and VR techniques, we watch two people try to establish a loving ‘real’ relationship in a world where all communication and contact is slowly shutting down.
This experimental hybrid drama operates where the screen-based aesthetics of gaming meet live performance – if you’ve ever thought theatre isn’t for you, Senseless might change your mind. Freed from the standard physical and budget limitations of theatrical work, McDermott uses technology not only to imagine innovative stage layouts and storytelling elements but also invites us to explore questions around contemporary relationships with technology within the play itself.
