Living day to day, not knowing if tomorrow will come, Simone Hamilton is overcoming the odds. Rising star, singer and influencer, her followers have witnessed it all. But what makes them believe it’s all true?
A Suffocating Choking Feeling is a subversive interrogation of truth, inspired by Instagram’s most infamous wellness influencer and cancer “survivor” Belle Gibson (as seen on BBC’s ‘Bad Influencer’). Blending live performance with video streaming and interactive social media experiments, Simone explores influencer culture and our dangerous obsession with crafting “authentic” versions of ourselves online.
