Theatre Jukebox presents Mass Observation is a new work that explores how universal truths and our national identity are sometimes best revealed through the mundane and the particular.
The work is presented on two interlinked Jukeboxes. Each Jukebox displays a selection of postcards. As the viewer encounters more postcards, a narrative expands crossing 70 years of daily British life. The Jukebox acts like snippets of memory or flicking through photo albums, with each postcard sparking images, associations, and snatches of conversations or ideas.
Theatre Jukebox presents Mass Observation is funded by Arts Council England, with additional funding and support from Future Everything, Ross Charitable Trust, Mayfest, SVA, Mass Observation Archive, University of Sussex and The Pervasive Media Studio.
