Inspired by Edward Snowden’s revelations and the ensuing debate on state surveillance, Theatre Ad Infinitum conjures an Orwellian future where a totalitarian regime monitors the thoughts of its citizens through implants.

Charged with hunting down ‘terrorists’ who seek illegal disconnection, a young government agent encounters an enigmatic figure from his shadowy past.

Blending anime-style storytelling and a pulsating soundscape to draw audiences into its sci-fi realm, this is a nightmarish tale of love, betrayal and technological power. LED strip and torchlight innovatively illuminate the wordless production set atmospherically in darkness.

Theatre Ad Infinitum’s work defies easy categorisation. Effortlessly switching styles in service of its latest subject, the international ensemble’s productions have been a highlight of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2008.
