“I saw Claire Gaydon’s ingenious little show at VAULT Festival and it’s nice to see it getting further London life as a part of a national tour. Gaydon spends the entire performance with her back to us but this piece is none the less revealing about the thousands of young people who would choose being a YouTuber as a career. But what happens to the real you when you put yourself on-line constantly for constant validation? And when you get the highest ratings for your most intimate stories of fear, shame and depression?”
All you need is a camera, an internet connection and something to say.
Last year, 34% of young people voted YouTuber as their top career choice. Claire was intrigued. She decided to have a go. Part documentary, part live performance, part parody, part desperate as f*ck, Claire does everything she can to entertain her online audience. While remaining 100% totally authentically real.
Examining validation, confession and the cost of sharing, See-Through is an edited, unedited, live, pre-recorded, reality show that invites you to see behind the camera.
