In a futuristic landscape of isolated rooms and transfer pods, two humans meet. Performed by Ross McCormack and Luke Hanna, System takes place in a room given life and power through a rich collaboration of precision-led choreography, intelligent lighting, and a highly detailed sonic and audio-visual landscape.
"...[like] a live episode of Black Mirror, sprinkled with a hint of psychedelic warmth and wry humour", audience member, Auckland, October 2018
