Everyone is Famous by Riot Stage Everyone is Famous by Riot Stage

Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy

Event Details


As part of Next Wave Festival.

Eleven teenagers wade through the wasteland of the internet, exploring the ways we make ourselves into our own image.

The internet is the Wild West. Persona in 2020 is post-ironic, post-truth, post and delete, pre-apocalypse and politically charged. It is freeing, it is constricting, it is gender-bending/breaking/ignoring. It is Kanye, it is catfishers, it is completely new, it is SIMS, it is Rachel Dolezal, it is Essena O’Neill, it is Trump, it is Fyre Festival, it is #hotgirlsummer, it is Miley, it is Kylie, it is filtered and honed. It is up to you. It is an art. It is a career. It is breaking all the rules. It is more complicated than ever.

In Everyone Is Famous, a group of teenagers pioneer this new uncertain territory on stage for you to witness with awe/shock/pleasure/horror/commiseration/empathy/lols. Image is not just attached to our bodies, it’s in the cloud. We step away and look at it from a distance, save it, delete it, like it, boost it.
