Living day to day, not knowing if tomorrow will come, Simone Hamilton is overcoming the odds. Rising star singer and influencer, her followers have witnessed it all.
None of it is her story... But does this mean it’s not true?
A 'Suffocating Choking Feeling' is a subversive interrogation of truth, inspired by Australian wellness influencer and cancer “survivor” Belle Gibson. Using social media experiments and LIVE performance via Zoom, Simone explores influencer culture and our dangerous obsession with crafting “authentic” versions of our lives.
Fresh from UK developments at TheatreDeli London and Cambridge Junction 'A Suffocating Choking Feeling' arrives LIVE to your Zoom screen.
This project is amplified by Melbourne Fringe through the Cash for Creatives program.
* LIVE on Zoom from London at 9PM AEDT / 10AM GMT
