This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.


3–12 Jun 2022

Delve into online and IRL spaces, where young people navigate identity, connection and intimacy.

Young people’s lives are dominated by social media: selfies, meme cycles, video filters, 'likes' and emojis. This screen culture defines their generation, but it's a world often hidden from the adults in their lives.

Anything & Everything is a glimpse into the intimate online and IRL spaces, where young people navigate identity, ability, connection and consent.

Director Jackson Castiglione (The Dispute) works with an ensemble of artists aged between 11 and 21 who've collaborated online for the last two years. As the performers joke, share and converse live onstage, their peers manipulate cameras, digital filters and video. Together they augment their identities in real-time to explore the thresholds between screen, reality and agency.

Post Show Q&A with Infinity Ensemble — 12 Jun
Join the infinity ensemble as they discuss themes of agency, identity and how technology plays a role in these processes.
