BAM DEBUT

 

What happens to your digital life after you’re gone? If there were a magic button would you choose to delete your online history?

You enter a café and receive a set of headphones and a smartphone. Several tables away, a man is grappling in real time with something deeply private. Gradually, you bear digital witness via smartphone and the live performance to a stranger’s profound, moving experience.

User Not Found invites you to be a voyeur. Immersing you in the very private and the very public, this site-specific play activates some surprising considerations of our afterlife on the internet and our shifting notions of connection and community.
