Price:£12.50 (£8 con)

Computer games and theatre collide in this new piece about Minecraft, parents and their children.

Using the computer construction game Minecraft as a kind of theatre, a group of gamer/performers between the ages of 10 and 46 enact different mother-son narratives, live, in front of an audience.

As they travel through digital terrains telling tales from the Beowulf saga, Bambi and The Terminator, personal stories of the powerful bond between mothers and sons emerge and weave themselves into the performance.

Inspired by the real-life relationship between Theatre Replacement’s Maiko Yamamoto, and her 11-year-old son Hokuto and his obsession with Minecraft, MINE is an intergenerational performance that both interrogates and recognises the role technology plays in our modern parent-child relationships.
