Contemporary Performance / Participatory Performance · Taiwan / Australia
Identity. Online. Sexuality. Data. Relationships. Technology. Queer. Virtual. Intimacy.
A collaboration between directors from Australia and Taiwan, Virtual Intimacy invites you to reveal information about yourself, openly and anonymously. From this, a post-digital work of participatory theatre evolves to explore both our relationships with technology and the ways in which it shapes our relationships with others.
South Australia's ActNow Theatre joins with Taiwan's Very Theatre for this unique performance experiment. A bilingual piece in English and Mandarin developed from work with local queer communities, Virtual Intimacy draws on its makers' practices in film, multimedia and participatory storytelling. Expect to play a part in the live conversations happening within the performance – bring a charged smartphone as we explore our intimate, digital selves.
Please note, audience members will need to use their own mobile data to participate.
