Lexi_Bohemians_POSTER_NOText Poster by R

Alex has been left by his girlfriend of 6 years with no explanation, other than a small note telling him she “can’t do this anymore”. Isolated and alone this bedroom musician begins to form a relationship with his smart speaker out of an impulse to be loved and to feel seen.

 

Lexi is a one-person, gig-theatre piece for the Black Mirror generation featuring original, live-looped electronic music. Lexi delves into toxic masculinity and men’s mental health as feminist issues, shining a light on the potential harmful behaviour AI, and 'human mimicking' technology can enable and perpetuate.

 

Lexi took place on the 5th, 6th and 7th August 2021 at the Rose and Crown Kentish Town.


The piece was co-written by Sophie Bevan (Moby Dick, John Godber Company) and co-written, composed and performed by Elliot Mackenzie (Zog and Million Dollar Quartet). Lexi is directed by Holly Reddaway and produced by Benji Mowbray and Abigail Middleton from The Bohemians Theatre Company.
