The Sensemaker shows a woman battling with an answering machine, trying to meet the impossible expectations of an artificial voice.
Critical of new technologies as well as of bureaucracy, this one-woman show mixes dance, theatre, and even lip-synching, and addresses with irony the fears and frustrations of our interconnected world.
Hilarious yet uncomfortable, The Sensemaker questions our capacities to resist an unjust authority.
