Queer hookup culture goes under the microscope in this new performance work.
Virtual Intimacy explores our relationships with technology and the ways it shapes our connection with others.
Developed with artists from South Australia and Taiwan alongside queer community participants in Melbourne, the show interrogates the world through digital footprints left behind – steps taken, the Facebook friends made, Instagram photos shared and number of hookups – on the search for “virtual intimacy”.
A unique performance experiment suitable for English and Mandarin speakers, Virtual Intimacy explores queer stories of coming out, love, loss and finding community through technology.
