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

Viral is a new work written and devised by Shock Therapy Productions and was developed through a series of community consultation workshops aimed at gathering true accounts of acts of discrimination. 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 sexual assault  in the community.

Viral is a powerful, thought provoking, dynamic and entertaining piece that incorporates a range of performance styles and influences.

What would you do if you overheard a racially motivated argument breaking out on your way home from work? Would you continue to sit quietly? Would you speak up and risk becoming the victim? Or would you take out your phone and start filming the event?

After the success of The Pillowman (2014 Independent Season) andThe Forwards (2015 Independent Season), Shock Therapy Productions returns to The Arts Centre Gold Coast to present another powerful, thought provoking story that is not to be missed.
