Self- Smartphone Theatre Experience
Self’ is a one-woman show about trust, friendship and betrayal on an online platform called ‘Social’. The audience’s smartphone device is an integral part of the show and its story.
Each member of the audience download an app, especially created for the performance, onto their device before the show, and during the show, receive content (video, audio, text, etc. exclusive to the show) that runs in tandem with the live performance. The audience’s device thus becomes part of the story, helping to create a larger world for the narrative, provide an intimate portal into and deeper engagement with the characters’ lives and stories as they progress, and forge a more personal connection between the audience and the stage.
