Multimedia Theatre: Paul Levy talks to Duncan Joseph about Smart

Where do you draw the line online? Paul Levy talks to writer Duncan Joseph from Empty Vessel about Sm@rt. “Thirtysomething online dating can be tragicomic, especially when you shouldn’t even be on Tinder. Lost and mired in tedium, Grace obsessively seeks instant gratification and a new sense of self online. Is it betrayal if it is only virtual? Smart is inspired by the photo series The Death of Conversation by Babycakes Romero. It explores our detachment from the physical world as we connect more and more with our virtual selves disconnecting with those around us. One of a pair of multimedia plays from Empty Vessel, examining the invasion of the virtual into the real.”
