The Ubiquitous Woman is a multi-media music-theatre work for four classical singers, two instrumentalists and treated sound, with music by Martin Ward and libretto by Di Sherlock. It tells the story of Natalie, whose physical ability to clone younger selves at will spirals out of control as her clones start to pursue their own relationships and agendas in a parallel digital world.
Witty, forthright and topical, we want this work to embrace a composite of contemporary art-forms including video and digital art to show the limitless possibilities and unintended consequences of re-inventing yourself online. What is the cost of satisfaction? Are we being left behind by technology and love?
