Overview:

Theatre Témoin

A co-production with The Lowry and Everyman Theatre Cheltenham

 

Welcome to the stimulating world of Feed where emotions are the currency and your passions and fantasies will be indulged... for a price. Theatre Témoin bring their vibrant visual style to the world of click-bait culture, fake news and cyber gluttony, and explore the dark absurdity of today’s media landscape. Feed looks at how algorithms and capitalism are shaping the information we receive and consume online... and how this information is shaping us.

A Palestinian woman takes a striking photograph of a boy.  A journalist steals the image for an unrelated article.  A blogger is moved to tears by the article and posts a tribute which goes viral.  Now all four are caught in a media storm that moves from reality into dark fantasy. Welcome to the stimulating world of Feed where emotions are the currency and your passions and fantasies will be indulged... for a price.
