Presented by Grace Lambert
Pixel Tears follows a young woman wandering through her post breakup emotional landscape. The performance explores alienation, disconnection and emotional pain in an over-saturated digital world. Interwoven with spoken word, pop songs and projections, the performance continually shifts between the banal and the surreal.
Set in her messy bedroom (in a possible future reality), the woman unwillingly starts an online therapy programme designed to help her recover from a breakup in 5 days. ‘Google Chrome’, her therapist, analyses her browsing history, data and text messages to make the recovery as quick and efficient as possible before guiding her rapidly through the stages of grief.
