Your friend Siobhan is an extroverted film student whose classes have been transferred online during COVID-19.
Instead of being moved by documentary film theory, however, she finds herself moved, instead, by coagulations of pixels with synchronized audio — that is, a particular fellow classmate.
Join us for this two part, interactive romantic comedy starring YOU as Siobhan “boldly goes” to explore genuine human connection through a screen—because she has no other choice.
Siobhán O’Loughlin (she/her) is a Los Angeles-based performance artist, activist, and filmmaker. She is the recipient of The New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, a grant recipient of the Network of Ensemble Theatres, a Moth Story Slam Champion, a fellow at Guild Hall of East Hampton, and an international teaching artist. Her site specific, immersive piece, Broken Bone Bathtub, toured globally for five consecutive years with over 600 performances in 40 different cities, and clocked top ten lists for theatre experiences from the Baltimore Sun, The San Francisco Examiner, and The Houston Chronicle. Broken Bone Bathtub is the recipient of the 2019 Immersion Award for Most Transformative Experience.
Siobhan quickly pivoted in the Covid-era to perform weekly in her interactive serial digital art experiment,Please Don’t Touch the Artist (PDT), which has earned No Proscenium’s Audience Choice Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in 2020.
“I would never go to Siobhán’s show, because if I knew how she creates profound connection and community, I might have FOMO about ever missing another one of her shows ever again.” Ariel López
