#PULSE18 – User Not Found

Performed on Wed 6 Jun


A story of contemporary grief, about our digital lives after we die.

A new preview play by Dante or Die & Chris Goode

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 lives after we die. This new play by celebrated site-specific company Dante or Die & pioneering theatre-artist Chris Goode is performed in New Wolsey’s bar, where you’ll be handed a smartphone and a pair of headphones. Become a fly-on-the-wall to peer into the life of a man who is faced with keeping or deleting.

A story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate performance that gently interrogates our emotional dependence on our screens.
