You’re invited to become the audience of an online self-broadcast show, in a theatre space.
Can something real and intimate be built through the screens?
The phenomenal explosion of live-streaming platforms in recent years is a result of the unsatisfied needs of the lonely individuals. These online broadcast rooms, such as Periscope or Twitch, are where people can hide behind their phones, and watch others talk, dance, game, and sleep, a form of companionship without obligation.
Presented with live-streaming technics and about the live-streaming world per se, TOGETHER looks at the codependent relationship between the online self-broadcasters and their followers. It is a game about the longing of integration, and the unavoidable failure of bonding.
During the performance, the audience can interact and communicate with the broadcasters via a specially designed app.
Expect a very personal experience, depending on how you choose to interact, or not to at all.
'An unconventional show… It also felt magical that through a piece of text, I could affect someone who might actually be at the other end of the world.' - The Theatre Times
The audience is advised to bring their charged phones or tablets in order to have a complete experience.
