After seven years in cryogenic deep-freeze a group of interstellar colonists, fleeing the destruction of the Earth, awaken to find that their ship has crash-landed on Idos, their planned new home. The Commander, the sole member of the crew who volunteered to stay awake during the voyage, has disappeared, and the ship’s computer has gone rogue, imprisoning them in the one working deck left in the ruin of the Hawk.
Seemingly intent on playing God after studying the Commander’s electronic books of ancient religions, the computer determines to first explore what it is to be human. To survive, the colonists must assume mythical roles cast by the computer from the ancient past so that it can test their reactions. The future looks bleak for the survivors when there seems to be no way around the machine’s manipulations of their psyches.
But Idos has its own resources, and one of them, a natural intelligence in the planet that they come to know as the Mindstream, seeks them out while they are being played by the computer, making them aware that help is at hand if they can use their roles to outsmart the cyberintelligence pitted against them.
The mood changes, dramatically, as the colonists learn to interpret the Mindstream’s subtle interference, appearing to play along with the computer’s manipulations, but re-shaping their roles one step at a time to deepen their control of the situation.
In the final act, the mechanical computer comes face to face with the power of the evolved human soul, laid bare by the necessity of survival created by its very existence.
Join us for this ground-breaking consciousness intensive weekend in the heart of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales.
Each person will play a fully scripted role for the whole weekend. The event offers a mixture of lectures and ritual dramas in which each of us will play a single role for the duration. Creativity will be welcome and encouraged, and we will all explore the deeper meanings of being Human.
Fun will most certainly be a theme and there is a lovely pub next door when we get tired of being serious!
