The Southern Theater
A one-man, multimedia piece of devised theatre that examines the condition of a trapped virtual identity through the lens of a cyber celebrity stuck within the regulating algorithms of a social media platform, inside a broadcasting room floating somewhere in the inter-webs of cyber space and time. An introspection on notions of identity and image, reality and perception, our need for real connection and inclusion coupled with our inability to disconnect ourselves from the virtual world (and our virtual identities in it).
