Fatherland on Thursday 19th September 2019
He works at Walgreen’s, lives along with his incapacitated father, and wants to fire Esperanza, their Mexican carer.
Frustrated, Wayne concocts his own conspiracy theory about why his father is ill - a theory that involves Mexican witches, giant pharmaceutical companies, and the neighbourhood crows. Fatherland is about how we navigate reality, how technology increasingly fills in the gaps of our own experience of the world, and how some things in life cannot be captured. It is a story drawn from Ben’s own journey to accept his father’s progressively worsening dementia, and his curiosity about all the ways we now live outside our physical bodies.
Fatherland merges real-time motion capture performance with immersive virtual reality, audience participation, and video projection to create a pioneering work live, mixed-reality theatre. Fatherland was initially conceived during a #TOMtech Lab, exploring how real-time motion capture can be used in live performance. Now it’s back and it’s all grown up!
