"I am a predator. I am a reaper. I am an avenger. I will end your world with the push of a button." Caught somewhere between a TED talk and a coming of age action thriller, this solo, autobiographical theatre performance explores the un-discussed world of drone warfare, and why the Iron Man films might just be the perfect metaphor. In 2013, Iron Man 3 became the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, most popular with 18-29 year olds. This is the same demographic the UK government defines as military aged: the pilots and targets in actual drone warfare. 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 unable to avoid answering the question: Would he use a drone? Between playing with action figures and wirelessly commanding the show via his PlayStation controller, Owl condenses a year of research into an hour of engaging performance that combines the fictional and factual, and takes a close look at remote killing.
