Electric Dreams: temping
In a basement office somewhere in Illinois, there's a job waiting for you. Sarah Jane is on vacation, and you’ve been hired to fill in. In this interactive show for one, you’ll explore her cubicle, answer her phone, and receive her faxes as the story of Sarah Jane unfolds around you. Sit down, send an email, and experience a meditation on life and death between the cells of an Excel spreadsheet. TEMPING was created by narrative technologists Wolf 359. ★★★★★ "A technical masterclass" Edinburgh Guide. ★★★★ "Edinburgh Fringe 2022, 10 best theatre shows" The Telegraph. ★★★★ "Jewel-like" The Arts Desk. ★★★★ The List. "Temping has never been so satisfying" This Week in NY. "Aside from the beauty of its storytelling, Temping is near flawless in its execution" NoProscenium.
