The Memory Dealer - an interactive drama
by Rik Lander

You are meeting your friend Eve at the cinema after she called you out of the blue. You stopped seeing her when she got involved in the whole memory thing. Last you heard 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, but for selected performances if you don’t have one you can borrow one from us. Starts at the Watershed. Duration approx. 90mins. For more information visit

Tickets £15 / £12
Friday 24th - Sunday 26th May.

Funded by Centre for Advanced Studies, University of Nottingham and the Arts Council England. Sponsored by DCRC and supported by the Doyle Collection, Caffe Gusto, Calvium, Watershed and the Pervasive Media Studio.
