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.
