"[Hands Off] looks at one of the significant things to have happened during the People’s near half-century span: the potentially dehumanising advent of video games, with their often lurid and violent content infiltrating young minds." Reviewsgate


"Thanks @peopleshowltd for disturbing but entertaining depiction of a decidedly dystopian present!" Audience member on Twitter

Over one billion people in the world are playing video games at this moment. We want to win, we want to see what's around the next corner and we want to see how it will end.  


Hands Off examines the world of digital gaming and the immeasurable realities it offers. In a series of scenarios both funny and unsettling in turn, it exposes the power relationships between gamer and game, player and controller.


Hands Off features three generations of People Show artists. 


Duration: 80 minutes 



Completed Performances:


Toynbee Studios London: 27th - 29th November. 8.00pm
