Chat Club Episode 21

Chat Club is a secret Facebook group of 53 people, made up of members who were recommended to me by Facebook to join. Every week, I post a time to chat, and then whoever likes the post is added in to the conversation. Chat Club captures contemporary concerns, loves and pre-occupations: what to have for dinner, the healing benefits of crystals, increased police powers in NSW, grappling with our colonial history, Broad City, internet addiction, crushes, thoughts on gender and sexuality, dreams about the future... 

 

Chat Club Episode 21 recreated the 21st group chat as a live performance, devised with the group meeting in real life and each chat participant performing their own part.
