Living in a world of Alexas and Siris, we have just sort of accepted the fact that near enough every move we make is tracked and recorded.

Inspired by Orwell’s dystopian novel comes an immersive performance from Pure Expression, where audiences are taken inside a totalitarian state where every act, move and thought is monitored.
Starring Aamira Challenger (Romeo & Juliet, Ostalgie), Robin Hellier (The Lehman Trilogy) and Simon Gleave (Bleak House, Metamorphosis), 2084 is set in a future where the state claims to be the only guarantor of order, which comes at a price of absolute obedience.
Telling the tale of two people who defy the regime, they soon find that actions have consequences and their deepest secrets are turned against them.
Taking place at Manchester Central Library from 5-14 February, 2084 explores the freedoms we take for granted and places audiences right in the heart of the action.
