[re: CLICK]
Adapted for Digital Performance and Directed by Margaret Kemp and Roger Ellis
in response to CLICK by Jacqueline Goldfinger 
Launch date: 12.09.20

CLICK follows a hacktivist named Fresh who turns industrial espionage into high art. As this virtual Banksy takes over the global imagination, the man who stole her life develops a technology that sends the two of them on a collision course at the heart of the corporate empire, where innovation comes at any cost. A cyberpunk drama for the #MeToo era, a story of trauma, transformation and reclaiming who you are.
