What happens to your digital life after your death? If there was a magic button, would you choose to delete your online history?


User Not Found
is about our digital identities after we die. You enter a café and receive a set of headphones and a smartphone. Several tables away, a man is grappling in real time with something deeply private. Gradually, you bear digital witness via smartphone and an intimate, funny live performance to a stranger’s profound experience.

This site-specific play from Dante or Die immerses you in both the private and public, provoking surprising considerations of our online afterlife and shifting notions of connection and community.

Please note this show takes place off site, at Artisan Coffee on Ealing Broadway. See map here.
