You are meeting Eve at the cinema after she called you out of the blue. You cut contact with her when she got involved in the whole memory thing. The last time you heard from her, she was on the run accused of dealing mems. Now she wants to see you. Set in a world where mobile phones can record and replay memories, The Memory Dealer is an interactive experience. In multiple locations around the city centre, memories have become trapped in everyday objects and you’ll encounter members of the underground mem-user subculture. Eve is desperate to prevent the government giving a single corporation ownership of all recorded memory. How far will you go to help a friend?
You will need an iPhone or Android phone. If you don’t have one, you may be able to borrow one for selected performances.
