Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home
Presented in 28 separate episodes, Late Night Staring at High Res Pixels will be streamed daily at 6pm via the Finborough Theatre's YouTube channel and simultaneously subtitled via Scenesaver
Late Night Staring at High Res Pixels is a new play repurposed for online viewing from the creative team behind SCROUNGER.
The first of the Finborough Theatre’s #FinboroughForFree original online content.
Two women. One photograph. A young woman sends a topless selfie to her boyfriend as a bit of flirtatious fun. When he shows it to his best friend for a laugh, he can’t imagine her having any other reaction. But what starts out as a joke soon turns into an accusation of something much darker. At what point does admiration become a form of control? How do we say ‘stop’ when it becomes apparent that we are complicit in hurting other women? If someone you know to be a good person, starts to prove themselves otherwise, how do you walk away?
Late Night Staring at High Res Pixels explores the issue of assumed consent and how it contributes to a culture of complicity and control towards women. Men have long held power in relationships with tools that have no name; this story aims to identify those methods.
