Faster Better Social
Written and Performed by Mike Daisey
January 16–17, Friday–Saturday
8:00 PM, Wright Memorial Theatre
Daisey has been called “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by the New York Times. His groundbreaking monologues weave together autobiography, gonzo journalism, and unscripted performance to tell hilarious and heartbreaking stories that define our age. In Faster Better Social he interrogates the disrupted landscape of technological change—where smartphones have transformed how we see the world around us—and our dissolving sense of privacy, our commoditization as clusters of consumer information, and our shrinking sense of time as we train ourselves to speak in 140 character haiku. What are we gaining? What are we losing? And what are we becoming? Sponsored by the Performing Arts Series and the Theatre Program.
