The Kinneksbond in Mamer is putting on an English play "Purge" by Brian Noble on Friday 5 October 2018 at 20:00, in association with The British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg.
In a more innocent time, before Cambridge Analytica, before "friend" became synonymous with "follower" and followers were cult members... a wide-eyed Brian Lobel infuriated his 1,342 Facebook Friends with The Purge. Over four days of performance in public cafés, Brian talked about each Facebook friend for one minute, after which time a jury of strangers decided whether he should "keep" or "delete" them. The deleting was real, the pace maniacal and the decisions final.
Drawing from 50 hours of performance and 800 emails from angry, amused and intrigued friends, Purge, the lecture performance, explores our ongoing, ever-changing and love-hate relationship with social media.
In English. 60 minutes. For 16+
Tickets €20 (€8 reduced).
