Future Tourist

Welcome to the future, to Smart-City; a super intelligent network designed to control all your city’s major services. It knows when to turn off your lights, when you haven’t put out your bins and when you need a taxi. Smart-City is devoted to making a better place for everyone to live and it’s time for you to get involved, all you need to do is sign up and take the bus tour…

Future Tourist is a science fiction set in an imaginable future where intelligent smart-tech pervades every aspect of our day-to-day lives. The Smart-City Bus Tour transports soon to be active smart-citizens around their city, informing them about how their smart-city works, how they can get involved and encouraging their input.

In our show, an unexpected event cause participants to become active agents in their own story, digging beneath the surface to uncover hidden layers that reveal what is going on behind the scenes.

Future Tourist is an immersive, participatory, site-specific drama that progresses from an online world to a real world experience, exploring and creating dialogue about both the promise and the perils of the digital age.

The show is aimed at but not exclusive to young adults 16 plus, the generation growing up with pervasive technology and in the process of becoming active citizens themselves.

We are currently seeking funding for the next stages of this challenging and exciting new drama. If you would like to find out more please contact: rachel@partexchangeco.org.uk
