Ada Lovelace changed our lives — inventing the first complex computer programme in 1843. This is her story told in an unexpected way.
Ada.Ada.Ada. is a live performance that entertains, excites and educates, tailor-made for business, education and events. A story that pushes us to see our potential. A woman that inspires us to be more.
