Old technology – we all used it, and it’s still there: cassette tapes, floppy discs, videos, 35mm slides, overhead projectors, Ansaphones, games consoles, View-Masters, faxes, Dictaphones, reel to reel, Ceefax…
How did we function with these ancient machines, these relics of the future?
In FaxFiction, seven writers – Sarah-Clare Conlon, Gary Fisher, David Gaffney, Rosie Garland, Valerie O’Riordan, Fat Roland and Nicholas Royle – have created six brand-new short stories focusing on these old technologies, and they will perform their pieces using gathered artefacts as part of this show, made uniquely for Refract:19.

Back with a bang for its third edition this July, is the opportunity to experience things differently at Waterside during Refract:19 . Running from Thursday 18 July to Saturday 27 July, this ten day event promises the very best in live comedy, music, dance, experiential performance and theatre.
