BRING YOUR PHONES: Take pictures, videos, live stream the whole thing if you like!
SAD-VENTS is an irreverent, interactive tragicomedy about mental health, heartbreak and trauma through the lens of social media.
Music, movement, and mixed media collide with a series of monologues plucked from my little brain that are so close to my actual life you could just be reading my diary. Obviously don’t actually read my diary though, that’s weird… boundaries, come on.
Somewhere between Euphoria, Instagram Live and all those Netflix trauma porn documentaries I know you just love watching, this show uses live camera work, video projection and real-time messaging to audience members who are ENCOURAGED TO USE THEIR PHONES IN THE SHOW (theatre etiquette lovers… look away!)
Together we’ll scroll through reels to find what’s real and when it’s done, we’ll go ready to share our deepest, darkest secrets with all and sundry.
Or not… ? Please see above re: boundaries. Love u bye xoxo
