Navigating the internet to find love is still a relatively new phenomenon. With the internet culture constantly developing, finding your feet isn't easy and anxieties can manifest in the form of emojis. How long should you wait before it's okay to message back? What's the exact right amount of flirt? Is a tongue-out emoji too desperate?
Choreographer and dancer Kaitlyn McConnell takes to the stage to decipher the online dating culture in a unique and dynamic performance that explores self-objectification, as well as objectification in the media.
Surrounded by six Macbooks on a stage set up like a Hollywood photo shoot - clean white floors lit up in a dark room - McConnell consults with Siri, giving the computers a human-like quality as they engage in cringe-worthy dating conversations.
McConnell responds to Siri's instructions with fast-paced physical movements - ditch the duck-face and no blank stares.
And contrasting with the human-robot interactions are real human interactions in the form of sound-movement conversations and casual chatting with composer Thomas Schmocker.
