We all exist somewhere online, whether we know it or not: a virtual trace, an online persona, a trail of clicks and searches laying claim to who we are.

I’d Be Lost Without It explores our 21st century addiction to technology, where our hunger for ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ is distancing us from ourselves and one another. In an age when at least 27 hours each week are spent online, I’d Be Lost Without It examines how technology is affecting our minds, our lives, our happiness and our brains.

Using headphones, binaural sound and immersive, movement-led theatre, Wet Picnic place the audience within an interactive performance that explores cyberpsychology, and the utopia and dystopia of our 21st century, tech-driven existence.

Working in collaboration with a Chartered Psychologist to extract real life experiences - leading physical theatre company, Wet Picnic, shine a light on our modern world and question what keeps us human in an age increasingly lived in online.
