Home/ What's On/ THE SENSEMAKER
Woman's Move (Geneva, Switzerland)
Have you ever waited on the phone for way too long, with a repetitive music playing on a loop and an irritating robotic voice telling you endlessly that your request is being processed? Yes, you have... And so does the protagonist of ‘The Sensemaker’ until she is gradually stretched beyond her limits.
Mixing theatre and dance, this dystopian battle between a woman and an answering machine questions the effects of new technologies on our lives, as well as the laborious administrative procedures of our bureaucratic systems.
With its razor-sharp sense of humour and its unclassifiable genre, ‘The Sensemaker’ has won 4 Awards and has been performed over 70 times across Europe.
"An astonishing, disturbing shapeshifting sliver of genius" Outstanding Show (FringeReview)
"A journey from darkly comic to deeply discomfiting. Captivating" ★★★★★ (Fringe Biscuit)
"It is a dance show in which the protagonist spends much of the time standing still. It is a piece of mime which can get very noisy indeed. It is both a dream and a nightmare" ★★★★ (THE PEG REVIEW)
"An ideal metaphor for our interconnected world" ★★★★ (The Stage)
