Recommended Age Guideline 14+


A live jam of music, video and poetry, this multimedia theatre showtells the true story of a military drone’s life and fears. The Drone is a weapons system, an office worker, a background hum.

The bleak humour and tender fury of Drone sees the unmanned aerial vehicle as the technology of a neurotic century, asking how anxious people can live as part of systems of such astonishing destruction. Drone is mixed new every night: a cabaret band of a video jockey, an electronic musician and a spoken word performer.

Note: This production uses strobe effects on a projector screen.


“ A state of the nation address from a frayed electronic mind flying high above that nation and looking for a place to hit.”
