Have you ever waited on the phone for way too long, with a repetitive muzak playing on a loop and an irritating robotic voice telling you endlessly that your request is being processed? 

Yes, you have... And so does the protagonist of The Sensemaker until she is gradually stretched beyond her limits.

Mixing theatre and dance, this dystopian battle between a woman and an answering machine questions the effects of new technologies on our lives, as well as the laborious administrative procedures of our bureaucratic systems.

With its razor-sharp sense of humour and its unclassifiable genre, multi-award winning The Sensemaker has been performed over 60 times across Europe, in 5 different languages.

'It is a dance show in which the protagonist spends much of the time standing still. It is a piece of mime which can get very noisy indeed. It is both a dream and a nightmare' ★★★★★ - The Peg Review, 2018

'An astonishing, disturbing shapeshifting sliver of genius' ★★★★★ - FringeReview, 2021
