Following its original London preview at CPT’s prestigious Sprint Festival in March, and its award-winning run at the inaugural Plymouth Fringe Festival in May, IRON M.A.M. comes to Windsor for One Night Only at The Firestation Arts Centre, on Thursday 10 December.

Caught somewhere between a TED talk and a coming-of-age action thriller, this one man theatre event explores the rarely discussed world of drone warfare, and why the Iron Man films might just be the perfect metaphor.

Owl is military aged, but he’s also a geek. He’s not a soldier, but he does play a lot of video games, and that’s got him thinking. As he looks back over his childhood, examining the links between masculinity, technology and warfare, he finds himself asking the question: would he use a drone?

In 2013, Iron Man 3 became the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, most popular with 18-33 year olds. This is the same demographic the UK government defines as military aged: the pilots and targets in drone warfare.

Between playing with action figures and wirelessly commanding the show via his PlayStation controller, Owl condenses a lifetime of technology into an hour of engaging performance that combines the fictional and factual, and takes a close look at remote killing.

Owl Young is a director and live artist with Bring You Own, a new UK theatre collective that combine performance, politics and gameplay to encourage new audiences to engage with art.
