beyond belief by tmesis theatre


Writer / Co-Devisor / Dramaturgy

What would happen if you could live forever? If you could bring your loved one back to life and resurrect their digital soul?

Beyond Belief is a powerful and moving journey into the unnerving future of life and death in our social media obsessed, technology blinkered society.

With their trademark, playful physical style Tmesis explore how we cope with loss in the digital age and how we won't ever let Elvis die.

'Rich with the company's trademark sinuous sections of movement, and with the narrative which suggests the cast and team share a subversive streak, it provides entertaining - and disturbing - food for thought'
The Stage

'A truly stunning piece of theatre. Unsettling, poignant and compelling'
North West End

'[Tmesis Theatre] always stand out. With their latest production, they are simply out-standing'
Wirral Globe

'A marvellous production... a true thinking piece and one that touches upon our deepest fears and hopes... a great pleasure to see someone of Chris Fittock's stature address such a particular demanding question'
Liverpool Sound and Vision

'A great concept – executed with great talent'
