from Oxia Theatre
"Jordan and Connie want their AI voice assistant – Alivia – to make their perfect lives just that little bit better. But happens when the technology starts to take control?"
A funny and searching exploration of love and domesticity in the near future.
ASSISTED explores the trend – greatly accelerated over the pandemic – for technology to play a role in the most intimate parts of our day-to-day domestic existence, capturing and manipulating increasing amounts of unfiltered information about ourselves and our lives. ASSISTED reflects and speculates on what might happen – in our use of language, in how we love and in how we exercise agency - as that technology stops being purely our servant.
ASSISTED is the debut production of Oxia Theatre – a fledgling company seeking to address vital and urgent issues through original work and new writing. We are delighted that ASSISTED has been selected by the Golden Goose Theatre to open the EMERGE2021 festival, a season of new works by recent graduates into theatre & live performance.
