Where is the Remote? is an absurd allegory about a man desperately searching for the TV remote as he watches a live broadcast of a volcanic eruption outside of his house. The volcano eventually repossesses his furniture. Through the magic of television, can the encroaching lava be ignored, switched off, or somehow rewound?

The piece was made over a two month period in collaboration with set designers Mark Lennon, Giles Watkins and Elizabeth Gray; and stars Oisin Donnelly, Katrina Cobain, Peter Eason Daniels and Esther Gamsu.
