Formed in 2008, Me and the Machine combines audiovisual and interactive technology with choreographed performance, evocative text and distinctive imagery. Audiences are invited to engage performatively in works that range from wearable videos to street installations and one-to-one theatre.

When We Meet Again is a wearable film and one-toone performance – a bizarre and sensuous experience featuring you, your invisible friend, a 3D soundtrack, an old forgotten dance, an ocean and the performer. Video filmed from a first person perspective is played on video goggles, replacing your point of view with that of a performer on the screen. When you are prompted to look down upon your body, what you see is… someone else’s. The brain is tricked into the illusion of being inside a new body, and this illusion is enhanced through the use of smell, touch and an immersive binaural soundtrack. With its innovative approach to film-viewing, this piece is a reflection on the nature of human encounters and the function (and defunction) of the body in our media-inundated times.

“When We Meet Again uses technology cleverly to give you an entirely different world view”

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
