Skype Heartbreak Show is an interactive installation exploring the decay of a long-distance, romantic relationship through the filters of unreliable technology.
During the performance, the audience witnesses the development of the couple’s relationship, as mediated by the technologies though which the characters communicate. The storyline is dynamic, changing according to the movement of the audience within the performance space. Members of the audience are both spectators and actors in this digital love story.
The Skype Heartbreak Show is credited in part by MFA first-year Ansh Patel, MFA second-year Pierre Depaz, and students from NYU’s ITP deparment. The project was awarded the Tisch Interdepartmental Grant.
