‘Message From Another You’ possesses an oddball charm. Its novel use of bespoke interactive software & voice technology, hitched to a didactic purpose is inspired. It’s a left-field morale boost if you’re feeling powerless and depressed by consistent failures of environmental policy and looming climate disaster.”
Cameron Woodhead, The Age
What if you could hear from a different version of yourself, living in a parallel world?
From the moment you arrive your immersive journey begins. A single person adventure into universes unknown. Over the course of this experience, guided by space suit clad performers, you will learn about the Many Worlds Interpretation, some of the keystone species, spaces and places that make our particular universe so unique and explore why we, as humans, are so fascinated by the notion of doubles and doppelgängers.
Then, in the name of collaborative care and interdimensional solidarity, a pandimensional organisation tasked with beneficial interventions across realities will ask a special favour of you... Follow the instructions carefully and afterwards, keep a close eye on your inbox - another version of you from a parallel world will be in touch.
Combining immersive theatre, live music, interactive interfaces and the very latest in AI voice-cloning technology, this wondrous adventure is a must.
