The Desire Machine



The Desire Machine is a 360° live installation combining a unique style of visual performance with an intense soundscape, plunging audiences into a hallucinatory world where figures and voices blend and echo for a thrilling, voyeuristic encounter.

The Desire Machine premiered in July 2015 with a sell-out 2 week run in the cavernous subterranean space, the Brunel Tunnel Shaft, both a site of industrial heritage and one of London’s best loved hidden gems.

The Desire Machine has been nominated for an Off West End Theatre Award 2015.
