About

Intimacy is dead, and we’re partying with its corpse online.

Intoxication is a post-dramatic patchwork that explores how the intense fear of being alone rules modern society, and how one person’s loneliness is symptomatic of everyone’s problem. A response to the work RAUSCH by Falk Richter & Anouk van Dijk, Intoxication came out of a near-death experience Christopher Bryant had in 2014: his resulting brain injury, displacement, and attempts to navigate the ‘dating game’.

This event is 18 +. Presented as part of House-Bound.
