The technology of the future is being developed, in part, by very intelligent and/or very well funded people who believe that death is just a technical glitch and immortality is genuinely possible.

The human being is being upgraded. This is terrifying and exciting and it’s coming – whether we like it or not.

Over the last two years we’ve been working with our friends RashDash Theatre to imagine the implications of real world, leading edge developments in human enhancement technologies. Working with leading scientists and researchers in the fields of brain implants, cognitive enhancing drugs, artificial intelligence, advanced prosthetics and other biotechnologies, Future Bodies is our take on what it means to have and be a body now and what we might become in the future.
