A little dark, a little awkward, a lot of funny
The overhype and glamorisation of social media is a concept we are all familiar with. We've all been there, finding ourselves scrolling through a friend's Facebook feed, wishing we were spending a year abroad, or had the energy to do a 12 week get fit challenge when in reality we know that people love to embellish stories online.
Patrick Durnan Silva and Honor Wolff from The Very Good Looking Initiative brings this concept to life in both a haunting and hilarious way. After realising that social media is draining their happiness and largely making them feel insecure and under accomplished, Patrick and Honor decide a social media cull is in order. They believe that removing these people from their lives will enhance their overall satisfaction, so they set about deleting friends from social media to help achieve this.
This dark comedy incorporates a mixture of high energy dance, long lingering stares and periods of silence extended just that little too long. The couple bring a lot of awkward to the stage, which will either make you laugh out loud or make you feel incredibly uncomfortable which was obvious just by looking at some of the audience's faces.
CULL will take you down a path you've probably considered before, but then leave you there, turn your thinking upside down and leave you confused yet amused at the same time.
