Uninvited Guests and Fuel present: To Those Born Later – a performance, discussion and interactive experience.
Imagine a future where all electronic records, digital photos, music playlists and personal messages are gone: our digital existence has been wiped.
How would we be remembered?
Uninvited Guests are travelling the country to create a digital record of today, a collection of things that matter to you, to keep in a time capsule that will be opened in 150 years.
– What image of our world should the people of the future see?
– What stories will they tell about these times we’re living through?
– What do you want to be remembered?
What do you want our legacy to be? Preserve something of you, your community and culture, for those who are yet to be born.
To Those Born Later is an interactive performance. Every show is different, made with and for each audience. The content of the time capsule will be chosen by people in the room who are adding to the growing archive of messages to the future.
Doors will open at 7pm for sharing and photographing of objects (see below – ‘what to bring’)
Event begins at 7.30pm.
Tickets for the event are free. If you would like to, and are able to, pay for your ticket, we recommend a contribution of £5, which can be paid on the day.
Please bring a smartphone if you have one and make sure it’s fully charged.
If you don’t have a smartphone you’ll still be able to participate. We can potentially provide devices for you to use during the event: please indicate if you would like one when you book your ticket.
When you come to the performance please bring along an object that means something to you, that you would like the people of the future to see. You will have the option for your object to be be photographed.
