Uninvited Guests and Fuel present To Those Born Later

Studio Residents, Uninvited Guests are travelling the country to create a digital record of our time, a collection of things that matter to you, to keep in a time capsule that will be opened in 150 years.

Uninvited Guests

Uninvited Guests use creative technologies to make entertaining and provocative participatory performances.

A digital dark age is coming. Soon hackers or a virus will corrupt our files and wipe our digital existence; all electronic records, digital photos, music playlists and personal messages gone. The cloud and servers will fail and Google, Facebook, corporations and governments cannot guarantee our data will survive. 

What image of our world should the people of the future see?
What stories will they tell about these times we're living through?
What do you want to be remembered?

We need to act now. Join us in preserving something of you, your community and culture, for those who are yet to be born. What do you want our legacy to be?

Every show will be different, made with and for each audience. The content of the time capsule will be chosen by people in the room and added to the growing archive of messages to the future.

To Those Born Later is an interactive performance. Please ensure that you bring your smartphone, if you have one, and that it is fully charged.

We invite you to bring along an object that means something to you, that you would like the people of the future to see. We will be taking photos of some of these objects.

Doors open at 7pm for sharing and photographing of objects. Event begins at 7.30pm.

Tickets are free. If you would like to and are able to pay for your ticket, we recommend a contribution of £5, which can be paid on the day.

Tickets are available here.
