It’s the moment of your death.
There’s a magic button.
Do you delete your entire online legacy?
Or do you keep it – and leave the choice for someone else?
User Not Found is about our digital identities after we die. This new play by celebrated site-specific company Dante or Die and pioneering writer Chris Goode is performed in Derby Theatre’s bistro. Through smartphones and headphones you become a fly-on-the-wall of one man faced with keeping or deleting. A story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate, funny performance that gently interrogates our need for connection.
User Not Found is the recipient of In Good Company’s mid-career artist commission and was developed with the support of ArtsDepot’s Creative Residencies and The Southbank Centre.
User Not Found is funded by the International Music & Art Foundation, AHRC, Wellcome Trust Public Engagement Fund & Arts Council England.
