With the explosion of social media anyone can become famous for no reason and attain a mass following of fans. What does the future hold considering the current obsession with fame, isolation caused by technology, and the quick rise of these celebrities? What does life look like hundreds of years down the line if this obsession continues? How do we aid in the creation of these celebrities though our interest in them? Social media is the new pantheon and celebrities are neo-gods and goddesses. Conversely, in a world where fame is mass produced, celebrities come a dime a dozen.
This bi coastal collaboration premiered in NYC August 2018 before touring to Seattle in September, 2018. Set in the distant future, this multidisciplinary performance utilizes digital art projections and original musical scoring performed live to comment on our collective desire for notoriety, validation, and stardom.
