Meditating I/Os is a live presentation of documentary material dramatised as a piece of experimental theatre/reading. Meursault - the protagonist of The Outsider (1942) - is lost in time and space. He de- and re-constructs his story, moving through a transcendent landscape of noise in order to piece together a narrative for himself and others, and make sense of the strange world that surrounds him on stage.
Staged using an eclectic combination of media with an emphasis on experiencing a story through sound, the play explores human-object relationships and the entanglement of things in a post-digital reality. Our revised protagonist is an avatar of his existence.
Direction & design. Two performances at IKLECTIK, London + broadcasts on Resonance FM & Extra, May 2018. Commissioned by Resonance as part of Strands, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
