Theatre Témoin in co-production with The Lowry and Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham and with support from Arts Council England and The Charles Irving Trust.
A Palestinian woman takes a striking photograph of a boy. A journalist steals the image for an unrelated article. A blogger is moved to tears by the article and posts a tribute. An SEO specialist makes the blogger’s tribute go viral. Now all four are caught in a media storm, in a whirring story that moves from reality into dark fantasy as the algorithms spin to deliver ‘what people want’.
Welcome to the stimulating world of Feed, where emotions are the currency, and your passions and fantasies will be indulged… for a price.

— Radio Summerhall
