Sockpuppet is a new play about deepfakes: the technological phenomenon allowing anyone to pretend to be anyone else. Almost.

Following the lives of three students exploring the thorny underbelly of the internet from their university flat, the piece explores how a new technology allows the past to bleed into the present. Utilising live camera work, video projection and real-time deepfaking software: you have never seen a celebrity impersonation like this.

Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022 and now transferring to VAULT Festival 2023, Buzzcut’s new face-swapping spectacle is not one to miss.

Buzzcut Productions

Buzzcut is an experimental theatre and film company recently formed out of Oxford University. We are interested in theatre that utilises live camera work and new technologies on stage. From the rehearsal room to the final performance, we are excited by how live art can be enriched by the digital. Our work has been performed at festivals such as VAULT and The Edinburgh Fringe, as well as venues such as The King's Head Theatre Islington, and Old Fire Station Oxford. Buzzcut is young and early in its career, but has big plans to make disruptive, nimble, and unfamiliar works which challenge traditional theatrical forms.
