Inspired by the real-life relationship between Theatre Replacement’s Artistic Director, Maiko Yamamoto, and her 11 year old son Hokuto and his obsession with Minecraft, MINE uses a digital lens to explore mother and child relationships.

The computer construction game Minecraft becomes a kind of theatre, as narratives are enacted live by a group of gamer/performers between the ages of 10 and 45, including four young gamers from our community.

In a rocky and mountainous landscape, Grendel’s mother takes brutal revenge in a tale from the Beowulf saga. In a clearing in the woods, the brief but powerful lessons that Bambi’s mother taught him, before that horrible day in the meadow, are revealed. In a nearby city, a cyborg assassin travels back in time to destroy a woman named Sarah Connor and her son, who hasn’t been born yet, but who will one day save the human race from machines.

These stories become myths, as MINE opens us up to expansive and strange new territories in an intergenerational performance that both interrogates and recognizes the role technology plays in our modern parent-child relationships.

Created by Theatre Replacement from Vancouver, Canada. Commissioned by artsdepot, Cambridge Junction and Future Arts Centres.
