It’s the moment of your death.

There’s a magic button.

Do you delete your entire online legacy?

Or do you keep it – and leave the choice for someone else? 

USER NOT FOUND is about our digital lives after we die. This new play by celebrated site-specific company Dante or Die & pioneering theatre-artist Chris Goode is performed in Cambridge Junction's foyer, where you’ll be handed a smartphone and a pair of headphones. Become a fly-on-the-wall to peer into the life of a man who is faced with keeping or deleting.

A story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate performance that gently interrogates our emotional dependence on our screens.

 

" a powerful metaphor for our emotional hinterland."
