About This Show

A daughter travels to the New Mexico desert on hearing that her mother has died there. But has she? Loosely inspired by Adam Curtis’ documentary The Century of the Self, A Dead Body in Taos explores what developments in artificial intelligence might mean for our understanding of death, consciousness and the soul.

David Farr’s new play is both a science fiction and an intimate study of loss and bereavement.
