Every wondered what it’s like to collaborate… with a machine?

Poet and theatre-maker Ross Sutherland will prise open the chassis of his MacBook, rip out the defunct motherboard, and expose the silicone intestines of a relationship gone wrong. Ross presents his documentary Every Rendition on a Broken Machine (commissioned by London Word Festival and previously seen at Forest Fringe) with live commentary, exploring the linguistic capabilities of automatons via Star Trek, JG Ballard and Clarissa Explains it All.

This performance is followed by an informal discussion about translation, automation and writing in a technological age with a panel.
