"Google Hangouts' glitchy delays... lend an air of menace to the proceedings. Hangout's grainy live video feed also serves Longitude well: with truth and clarity so variable, there should be more than a little static to the story... it's great to see socially-engaged theater exploring the backroom dealings of water commodity profiteering."  -  DJ Pangburn, Vice

"Some of the most exciting commissions already granted include a Google Hangout theatre experiment produced by Elastic Future."   -  Liat Clark, Wired

"Lean In."  -  Jennifer Hicks, Forbes

Commissioned by LIFT, AND Festival and Waterman's for the launch of The Space.
