Camden People’s Theatre will hold the FUTURESHOCK Festival over the next few weeks. With its futuristic themes and big questions, Futureshock festival is a platform for Britain’s most exciting new theatre artists to stage their visions of the worlds to come. Will human beings escape their own minds and bodies, and fuse with machines? Is the end of the world nigh – and if so, how will it feel? Futureshock features theatre, poetry, cabaret and ‘scratch’ nights.
