Ever heard of ASMR, a.k.a. Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or, those head tingles you get when someone gives you close, personal attention or touches your stuff in a non-threatening way?
Now you can enjoy this digital experience at Melbourne Fringe with JSMR. Pop in your headphones, lie back, and let Jessica Stanley take care of you in this calming, sensory exploration of pleasing triggers for you (and not-so-pleasing triggers for your host) as she blends ASMR with personal stories of how she came to discover, love...and need it. It might be cathartic. It might put you to sleep. It might get personal. It will definitely feel weird.
Best Performance nominee (2016) Jessica Stanley returns to Melbourne Fringe for the fourth time, following successful runs of Quite Drunk, Very Jesus-y (2019), Ross & Rachel (2018) and Ménage (2016).
Originally intended as a live theatre event at Trades Hall, where audience members would wear wireless headphones, this digital pivot will allow for you to experience ASMR* from the comfort of your home.
Please note this show should be listened to via headphones for optimal audience experience.
*ASMR not guaranteed.
Warning: Contains some infrequent/low pressure audience interaction, potentially triggering content or themes, including Sexual Assault or Abuse, Sexual Harassment, Death, Mental Health
