A Machine they're Secretly Building
Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre
From what might be a news desk, an office, an underground bunker or a theatre – two people speak up, speak out, and blow the whistle on the insidious machine of surveillance. A Machine... charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN), through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden, and the terror of a future that might already be upon us. ‘A sharing of disbelief, an articulate wail of anger’ (BritishTheatreGuide.info).
