USER NOT FOUND
Quantum Coffee Roasters, Cardiff Bay. Mon 29 + Tue 30 Apr
Today, social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram play a huge part in our lives. A survey by GWI reports that on average we spend 142 minutes a day on social media. But have you ever wondered what would happen to your social media accounts after you die? Would you want cat memes and pictures of your dinner to be your everlasting online legacy or would you choose to erase it all if you could?
User Not Found, which first premiered at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe before touring across numerous venues, is set to be a thought-provoking and heartfelt production which explores contemporary grief and our digital lives after we die. Taking place at the intimate Quantum Coffee Roasters and performed solely by Terry O’Donovan, User… tells the story of a man who discovers that his former partner has passed away. Left in charge of their social media accounts, he is faced with the dilemma of keeping or deleting his partner’s online existence.
Written by Chris Goode and produced by site-specific theatre company Dante or Die, User Not Found offers a unique perspective as audience members are given a smartphone and a pair of headphones in order to fully immerse themselves into the experience. Each performance is also captioned.
