James McDermott’s new multi-modal play is a timely exploration of love, longing and the challenges of communicating how we really feel. Fusing traditional stagecraft and live theatre with unprecedented use of state-of-the-art immersive film-making and VR techniques, we watch two people try to establish a loving ‘real’ relationship in a world where all communication and contact is slowly shutting down. This experimental hybrid drama operates where the screen-based aesthetics of gaming meet live performance – if you’ve ever thought theatre isn’t for you, Senseless might change your mind.
