EVERYONE IS FAMOUS by Riot Stage
Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy
Nine young folk wade through the wasteland of the internet to find themselves.
The internet is the Wild West. Persona in 2021 is post-ironic, post-truth, post and delete, pre-apocalypse and politically charged. It is freeing, it is constricting, it is genderbending/breaking/ignoring. It is Cardi, it is catfishers, it is completely new, it is Hype House, it is Rachel Dolezal, it is red vs. blue, it is Fyre Festival, it is #like4like, 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 kidz 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.
