“What if we’ve lost something really fundamental?”
Chemistry is set in a future world without touch. Children are conceived through IVF, overseen by robot Fosterers.
Prospective parents must meet to approve their genetic matching. In one such pairing meeting, the sophisticated Bea and first-timer Jay try to navigate the process and their strong reactions to each other.
Chemistry explores reproductive politics, human attachment and the dangers of a technology-driven state.
Created for socially distanced performance in 2020, Chemistry plays out intensely and claustrophobically in real time.
From the award-winning Different Theatre.
