This digital theatrical production combines elements of theatre, film and remote technology to produce a unique performance of the late 15th century morality play. This production of Everyman, titled EVERY_01 is meant to connect to the world around us at this specific moment in time. The original script is populated with personifications of Death, Good Deeds, Knowledge and Friendship. In this 2021 production a world is created that brings those personifications to life with an eye for our modern-day audience.
