BINGE was commissioned by La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego who had paused all of their activities out of respect for the anti-racism movement in the U.S. It will now be possible to participate in BINGE from Tuesday 30 June - tickets will go on sale on 12 June.
In the virtual company of an artist, transform the solitary experience of binge-watching television shows to bring you a little solace at home.
A one-on-one performance piece that takes the solitary experience of binge-watching television shows and transforms it into an opportunity to find comfort in the lives of fictional characters. Participating artists include Ruairí Ó'Donnabháin and Louise White. Tailor-made to fit the life of each individual audience member, the performance offers a live Zoom session with a personal artist companion, resulting in the prescription of a classic television episode to provide a little bit of solace at home. Leave your own drama behind, and insert yourself into a world where whatever the drama, it’ll probably be solved in under 30 minutes.
Tickets are available here.
