Take your phone to the theatre! Join Adrienne Wong for coffee, crafts, storytelling, and surprises. Leave your phone on.

SmartSmart combines audience participation and a modular script where the storytelling is predetermined, but the order is improvised based on you, the audience. The experience is a meditation on mediation.

Smartphones are one of many ‘modifications’ humans make to themselves in the name of advancement. Early cybernetic devices have ranged from contact lenses to cochlear implants. Now haptics on our phones remind us to drink water, notifications urge us to get enough sleep, and our senses are extended by a web of computers accessible from the pocket-sized terminals we tuck under our pillows at night. This is a new work that explores pervasive media and our relationships to our devices, how they extend our senses, and affect our relationships with other humans and ourselves.

In-person event and livestream option available. Click the ticket link for more information on each and access notes.
