Lemonade and Laughing Gas introduce something a little different...
Inspired by the Unplugging Movement, and research into how digital technology is changing us, Unplugged is a meditation on how to embrace mindfulness, intimacy, and alone-ness in the digital age. Unplugged wonders what we can do to negate the effects of losing ourselves to a world of screens, and offers audience members the chance to reflect on how digital technology affects their own lives.
It asks our audience to take a risk: to unplug, to detach, to truly explore their perception of the world without the filter of digital culture. In order to do this, we propose a journey. This journey starts with a letter in the post, asks you to board a train, instructs you to connect with strangers you meet, and sneaks a peek at the blissful ocean.
It asks you to embrace slowness, to enjoy being lost, to marvel in small physical movements.
This is a self-led journey of discovery like no other, structured by us, and embarked upon by you.
HOW IT WORKS
Unplugged is a 6 hour outdoor experience for one person at a time.
The experience begins on the 10.37am train from London Victoria to Whitstable. Participants will be posted a ‘kit’ in the post before the day which will include train tickets, special vouchers, maps and notes. The experience will include structured pit-stops involving food, drinks and of course, getting on the train home. We will ask you to go without your phone for the majority of this experience.
Tickets are £35 for the whole experience and include your travel, a light lunch and refreshments.
