Mike Daisey: Faster Better Social

Interrogating the landscape of technological change

Mike Daisey, who has been called a “master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by The New York Times, is known for weaving autobiography, gonzo journalism and unscripted performance to tell stories that define the world.

In this solo performance, Daisey will explore the disrupted landscape of technological change. He will examine a world where smartphones have transformed how we see the world, the dissolving sense of privacy and a shrinking sense of time as we train ourselves to speak in 140 character haiku. What are we gaining? What are we losing? And what are we becoming?
