Future Proof is an *interactive performance lecture about chaos, order, and (obsessive-compulsive) disorder.

Originally developed as an online piece in 2020, Future Proof explores how our experience of the present is informed by a ‘misremembered past and an imagined future’ and how, when the future ceases to be predictable, we can find comfort in the present.

Writer and Performer Claudia Jefferies draws parallels between the future-related anxiety that drives her OCD compulsions and the disruption that life-altering events such as global pandemics can have on our relationship to the future. It also looks at how collective rituals can be interpreted as bringing a sense of order and meaning to our existences, whereas personal rituals are, in her case at least, viewed as symptomatic of a disorder.

*While audience participation can be an intimidating prospect for some, all the interactive elements are executed with care and generosity and are strictly optional.*
