A holographic puppet opera, this visually haunting work tells a touching, fractured tale of absence and regret through moving music, startling images and visual wonder.
The piece uses a 19th-century theatrical illusion called a Pepper’s Ghost to project puppet-sized holograms of human figures onto a tabletop stage. Two live performers interact with these ghostly “puppets” by moving objects about the stage to construct environments for these spectral images to inhabit.

Political advertising has got smarter. But have we? This quirky drama-documentary, combining expert interviews with a good old-fashioned alien invasion melodrama introduces us to some of the amazing techniques being employed by advertisers, explains how data from social media is fuelling them and investigates whether our democracy is under attack. Should we be changing our online behaviour? Will the data-guzzling aliens be defeated?
This is the trailer for the one hour stage production by Erratica. Four singers and a solo dancer lead the audience in an extraordinary auditory excavation, unearthing the songs and stories of love and loss, buried in the soil of post-war Bosnia.
Drawn to Bosnia by her family history, Brkic joined a UN forensic team helping to excavate the mass graves at Srebrenica. Yet among the horrors of war, she discovered remnants of an extraordinary romance between her catholic grandmother Angelka and a young Jewish man forced into hiding by fascists.
