Binary premiered on 20th January 2017, as part of the Resolution festival at The Place. In this piece, I have been looking at how digital technology has permeated our lives, posing questions such as ‘are we all cyborgs now?’ In a world obsessed with digital, Binary explores a medium which appears to have no limitations yet is constructed from 1s and 0s. Stripping back the glowing images to reveal something more basic, a group of performers are put to the test: can they make the computer more human, more like them? I am lucky to have a great group of people working on this project including designer Kitty Hinchcliffe and composer Jamie Forth and, of course, the performers. Binary has had two weeks of further research and development at The Place.
