Event description

Description

THE EMPATHY EXPERIMENT is an award-winning solo spoken word show by multiple slam-winning Canadian poet Rose Condo.

THE EMPATHY EXPERIMENT asks if empathy is in decline ... and whether smartphones are to blame. Embarking on her own Day Of No Mobile Phones, Rose invites the audience to join her in the final hour of her experiment – including handing over their devices! Rose seamlessly weaves poetry into her performance while trying to navigate digital withdrawal and prove her theory that empathy can be saved.

Rose writes an open letter to Facebook about how their relationship has turned sour. She shares a fairy tale featuring a magic mirror that tries to evoke empathy from the current American president. Rose hits a crisis of confidence in realising that mobile technology has become essential for some people (e.g. disability access). She tries to reconcile feelings of guilt with still wanting to address tech addiction.
