What happens to your digital life after you die? If there was a magic button, would you delete your online existence?

USER NOT FOUND is an immersive video podcast about what happens to our online identities after we die.

For this new digital adaptation of the 2018/19 critically-acclaimed live show - part of TravFest 18 - Dante or Die have created a virtual site-specific world. Charge your phone, plug in your headphones and find a quiet space for this intimate, meditative and funny story of one man grappling with something deeply private.

USER NOT FOUND explores the ethics of digital ownership, public and private grief and shifting notions of connection and community.
