Brand new locally created show 'Virtual Symposium' could be described as The Wizard of Oz meets Ghost in the Machine; a sci-fi adventure comedy that begs philosophical questions of a tech-driven future.
In the near future, Helen's only companion is an assistant robot called BUD-E. Her only human contact is Ziggy, a therapist of sorts, who treats addiction with a virtual program that forces Helen into some self-reflection. Will the avatars of the virtual world prove too enticing, or will Helen finally choose something real?
All this written and produced in Karamea by local writer Brendan O'Dwyer with massive support from a cast of 13 and horde of helpers, who have been working hard for nearly two years to bring the Virtual Symposium play to life.
Great opportunity to come stay a night in Karamea and experience history being made!
Date: Friday 16th & Saturday 17th February
