UPGRADE (Development stage)
Upgrade is an audience participation Heist Sci-Fi Performance about a gang of people with disability who rob a military bionic equipment lab and then everything goes wrong.
Performed by performers with disabilities, this minimalistic Post-humanic performance immerses the audience in the life experiences of people with disabilities robbing a lan and life experiences as cyborgs running away. In both, they are never 'normal'.
