What is the price of internet fame?

Viral tells the story of Art and Zane – two boys who seek to attain internet ‘fame’ in order to become more popular at school and to make some money.

Inspired by true events, Viral examines the role of social media and technology and how it impacts the way we record, communicate and think about events of racism, abuse and violence in our community, investigating the line between disassociation and raising awareness about such events.

Viral uses physical theatre, multiple role-sharing, verbatim, political theatre, AV and an evocative musical score and to create a visceral and dynamic theatrical experience.



“Viral” is a slick show, as you would expect in consideration of Shock Therapy’s previously acclaimed works.
