The Washing Machine
An old radio.
A man and a woman struggling to connect in a world somewhere between virtual and real. Napoleon’s Messenger is a play about afterlife in a new world of social media: an exploration of loneliness and virtual connection, and how new technologies distort, or perhaps simply alter, our perception.
Staged in a non-space of retrograde technology Napoleon's Messengers is about the pervasive nature of the utopian online worlds we try to create, and the risks in not realising that no matter how fictionalised they become, the impetus behind these worlds is very real.
Napoleon's Messenger was presented at MORE STORM FESTIVAL, Middlesex University in September 2016 and DYSTOPIAN UTOPIAN REALITIES, curated by 3sACrowd at Ugly Duck in April 2017
