Factory International presents Free Your Mind, a large-scale and immersive retelling of the classic sci-fi film The Matrix.
Directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Frankenstein), Free Your Mind is a dramatic retelling of the mega-hit sci-fi movie The Matrix, told through dance, music and visual effects.
This extraordinary show brings together the visceral movement of choreographer Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy with a powerful score by acclaimed composer Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, large-scale sculptures by world-leading designer Es Devlin, costumes by fashion designer Gareth Pugh, , and the work of renowned writer Sabrina Mahfouz (HBO’s Full Circle).
Tapping into the collective energy of the moment, the show depicts a world where humans are enslaved by algorithms – asking can we break free? And do we even want to?
Free You Mind premieres at Factory International in Manchester from 13 October to 5 November 2023. There’s no current news on if or when Free Your Mind will transfer to London, but check back for details or sign-up to our email alerts to be the first to know.
