About Seen / By Everyone

Cat videos, photos of ultrasounds, proclamations of loneliness, and the endless gloating of lives well-lived coexist with heartfelt final goodbyes to, now, ghosts in the machine. What does it mean to live, die, grieve, and keep living in the era of over sharing?

"Seen / By Everyone" uses found text to illuminate the intimacy of people’s online revelations and tells a story of how we are now returning to an era, like the Greeks before us, of public mourning. The play explores how this technology has turned all users into chroniclers of their own lives and the lives of others. It also highlights the humor found when there is no barrier between the heartfelt and profound and the banal and crass. A deeply felt remembrance of someone just passed away is butted up against the latest SNL clip-gone-viral. What that culture-mashing moment looks like is played out in real life.
