Deep within a hidden office complex in the city centre, a mysterious new Korean technology company is about to change the way we view the world.
This unmissable production centres on the UK launch of a Korean global technology company on the 30th anniversary of the Korean Sixth Republic. The company spearheads a range of new technologies for international governments and multinational commercial organisations, including gaming experiences and interior navigation apps.
For each performance, the company will throw open its doors to the general public where you will be allowed to explore private areas and offices as well as laboratories where you will test and participate in the technologies that are being developed. We’re certain you won’t have experienced anything like this before.
ONE DAY, MAYBE is inspired by the May 1980 Democratic Uprising in Gwangju, South Korea, an important event that paved the way for democratic rule and the birth of the Sixth Republic in 1987. Shining a light on this particular point in history, it is set largely in the present day and looks at the modern world we all inhabit from the perspective of May 1980.
As the audience is drawn deeper into this labyrinthine technological world, they find themselves slipping between past, present and future, tumbling back to the aftermath of May 1980 before stumbling forward towards a bright but uncertain future.
