You Only Live +
  • Edinburgh Fringe

'The more I drink in real life, the more my babies are taken away by social services in my Sims life.' Between job interviews, Charli downloads a life simulation app. Rapidly cycling through avatars, she starts to lose sight of where its algorithm ends and the real world begins. Choice becomes a game, but how do you make good decisions when you're dissociated from consequence? You Only Live + blends stand-up comedy and theatre to explore how we scrabble together a pattern of experience, and what happens when we lose track of our self-told stories.
