The Arts Centre Gold Coast in collaboration with Shock Therapy Productions presents Viral.

Lights. Camera. Upload.

After the success of The Pillowman at The Arts Centre Gold Coast (2014) and the Brisbane Powerhouse in 2015 (winner of 3 Matilda Awards) and The Forwards (2015 The Arts Centre Gold Coast Independent Season), Shock Therapy Productions will return to The Arts Centre Gold Coast to present this powerful, thought provoking, dynamic, challenging and entertaining piece, incorporating a number of performance styles.

Viral is a new work written and devised by Shock Therapy Productions and is inspired by a number of true events. The play fuses physical theatre, verbatim style text, AV projections and political theatre as it explores the role of social media and technology and how it impacts the way we record, communicate and think about events of racism, abuse, violence and harassment in the community.

What is the price of Internet fame? As society attempts to keep up with the rapidly changing and thrilling new world of social media and viral videos, how do we define our social responsibilities?

Viral was developed with community consultation and workshops aimed at gathering multiple perspectives about these issues.

Shock Therapy Productions - Winner Of 3 Matilda Awards 2015, Viral is written & directed by Hayden Jones and Sam Foster.
