'Sex with Strangers' sparks dialogue about sex, intimacy, and love in the digital age

February 7, 2018

In our technologically driven world, are you keeping up? Is your Facebook profile up to date, are your Instagram pictures perfectly filtered, and are you an undeniable pro at crafting 280-character phrases? Or are you falling short?

 

On one end of the spectrum, our world is turning digital, and if you’re not keeping up you risk becoming irrelevant. Social media is turning into an essential marketing platform for businesses and personal brands — to not take advantage, some might say, is to cut yourself short. But on the other end of the spectrum, our increasing dependence on our screens is impacting the way we interact — how we present ourselves both in real life and online can prevent us from taking part in what is happening right in front of us.

 

 

This juxtaposition is explored in Cardinal Stage Company‘s next production, Sex with Strangers, which closely examines first impressions, online and real-life personas, intimacy, status, and the right to a past that doesn’t define your future. From playwright Laura Eason, who is also known for her work on Netflix, Sex with Strangers will come to Bloomington’s Ivy Tech John Waldron Auditorium from February 9 to February 25, directed by guest director Scott Weinstein.
