Age guidance: 16+
Running time: 50 mins (approx)
Intimacy and proximity aren’t the same. We’re bombarded by hyperbole and sensationalism to a point where we’re unsure what connection means anymore.
We’re lost in all the noise. I’m a product of the internet. The internet that’s made of cats internet The internet that’s made of cats and penis and you internet. The Facebook, twitter, super social internet. The just eat, amazon and eBay; convenience internet. The meme making, hate distributing, trolling internet. The holiday photo posting, selfie generation, shameless self promoting internet. The celebrity stalking, are you a pirate or a ninja, Charlie bit my finger the internet. The anonymous, penis enlargement, fear mongering internet. The lets all get together for a justifiable cause and do something stupid internet. A product of the everlasting, immortal internet.
At some point in the last year Nathan developed a rash. Which manifested and transformed into what you are about to see.
A coming of age story for a hyper-connected world. A world convinced it’s dying. A world where it’s not the size that matters, but what you do.
Commissioned by hÅb, co-produced with Contact Theatre, Manchester for WorksAhead made possible with support from the Arts Council England.
