Time and time again, people tell us that making theatre is hard work. Money's in IT these days, kids. Apps n' all that. Y'know, apps. Bold new world, all online... Apps. Yeah, apps.
So we're app developers now.
Well, sort of. We've created this wild idea of a show and you can find the start line on your phone. Where you go from there... Well, you will have to find out!
When the answer to everything is at our fingertips, how much information is too much information? And who else has access to it? In Big Data, a bespoke app-driven adventure whisks you on a journey around town to find where your data goes – and who is looking after it. Part-treasure hunt, part-mystery; Big Data is a theatrical game filled with challenges and bizarre characters – from sneaky bots right through to the big data boss.
