#EMBEDDED# & Life Beneath the Stars
CREATED & PERFORMED BY BY PRATIK MOTWANI (INDIA)
A peek into the outrageously hilarious broadcasting room of a diffident and quirky, basement-dwelling computer nerd who creates a flamboyant super-cool (so he thinks) virtual identity of himself that begins to make youtube videos in an attempt to connect with the outside world. The acts begin to get funnier, the videos more unabashedly hilarious and the virtual identity bolder, louder and more extravagant. To what extent will he go to keep that BUZZ going.
An introspection on notions of identity and image, reality and perception, our need for real connection and inclusion coupled with our inability to disconnect our selves from the virtual world (and our virtual identities in it).
A world desperate for real connection. A world from which it is impossible to disconnect. A world in which all connection/communication happens only via a Wall.
