The Binaries Between Us
‘U out 2night?’, ‘5’3 brunette, blue eyes’, ‘wut good?’, ‘Laid back guy who just wants to have fun’, ‘Hey remember me?’, ‘tall for an Asian’, ‘Netflix and chill?’,‘God, how do you write a whole profile about yourself?’, ‘U out?’
The Binaries Between Us is a performance that delves into the realities of dating in a world replete with technology. With stark structural staging and a devastatingly dark ironic script, the show zeroes in on the infinite hydra of hope and anxiety that is the contemporary dating experience. Jumping from the emptiness of dating profiles, to texting to no end, to the micro judgments we make of each other when finally face-to-face. The show reveals the effects living screen-to-screen has on our romantic lives while pointing towards our universal longing for connection and touch.
