Whilst The Rest Were Sleeping | CiRCA69 | TomTech

What connects a mass disappearance from 1959, the death of an old man in a New York high rise in 2010, an artificial intelligence beating a grand master at chess in 1997 and 8 letters written by an autistic child to his imaginary friend?

Step into the world of CIRCA69 as they attempt to piece together a mystery spanning 60 years. Use your phone to unlock clues hidden in portraits hanging on the wall and don VR headsets to visit worlds within the story. Using immersive tech hidden across the whole building, live electronic score, cinema and your own inquisition – put the final pieces in place to discover the truth.

This premiere performance brings together six of CIRCA69 works, seen all over the world, to tell the story that has obsessed them for years. Do your research. Be prepared. Question everything.
