The Future Show tells the story of a group of ten University students, from the end of the show (from the moment “you will clap”) until the end of their lives. For each new performance - each new site and each new night - the performance score is rewritten to adapt to its specific circumstances. Based on Canadian playwright Deborah Pearson's original text, the piece unfolds through time and explores the mundane of the everyday, the uncertainty of middle age, and the precocity of life.

Trigger warning: Scenes depicting violence, drug use, terminal illness and death
