Andy Franzkowiak, artistic producer of LAStheatre and The Enlightenment Cafe talks about his new immersive theatre event appearing in Docklands ecohub, The Crystal, next week (19-25 Jan). New Atlantis imagines the world in 2050, with rising sea levels – Miami has been abandoned – and shortages of fresh water. In London big decisions have to be made and all sorts of political shenanigans seem to be going on, and the audience become part of this world together with actors, artists and scientists. We caught up with Andy as the final preparations were about to begin.
