We invite you to join The Short Message Service.

The structure is simple: two performers stand onstage and receive SMS commands from the audience. They will do what they are told.

Part game, part experiment, but all performance, The Short Message Service draws inspiration from landmark psychological experiments and the user-generated online and media revolution.

With the audience as the vital ingredient, The Short Message Service uses technology to interrogate what happens when a group of strangers gain control over a couple of willing volunteers.

Capacity is limited so book early and bring your phone fully charged.

Check out The Short Message Service on Facebook.
