    By Proxy is a research-based, devised theatre company working with speculative fiction. Our work envisions the next 10-50 years looking at themes such as AI, climate crisis and enhancement technology alongside the current socio-political trends. We're interested in the embodiment of various future scenarios - understanding how big and abstract concepts might ripple down to day-to-day lives. We're interested in a near-future landscape that we, ourselves, will witness in our lifetimes. We then turn this into character driven dark comedy scenarios.

    Our exploration is driven towards anxieties and hopes of marginalised and underground communities, where change is most pronounced. We're curious about the lives that we might live. We look at the future from a dual perspective believing that the technology itself has a potential to be both a positive and a negative force.

    Our practice can be summarised in a simple 'what if?', a question we want to invite both our practitioners and our audience into.

    A journey into tomorrow: notes from exploring social fiction in theatre

    Social fiction plays a rather jarring game with us: on the cross road of what we know, what might be and what we can imagine out of that. A whole multitude of scenarios for us to digest. Scenarios that scream to be explored and embodied artistically. 

    Aggie Jurochnik explores social fiction in theatre ahead of By Proxy's upcoming show: Scattered Dreams.


    "Hats off to the CPT for this fine show, well researched and coming from a place of great passion... Comm­unity theatre at its most effective."
