    Move Fast and Break Things was first presented as a digital show in 2021 to critical acclaim, it’s a miniature epic that explores the vastness of the data we leave behind through an intimate search for the person most responsible for how the internet works today, using movement, projection and soundscapes.

    Amit Patel was a data scientist at a company called Google. In 2002, he noticed something secret, hidden in all of our data. What did he discover, and was it the reason he disappeared? Alone in a room, Julia asks these questions, and one above all else: where is he now? The search for Amit takes place across worlds - real and online - and as the boundaries between the two begin to collapse, Julia races towards an impossible, tragic conclusion.
