Part game show, part love story, part lecture exploring modern friendships

In 2011, Brian Lobel played a brutal game of friendship maintenance: over 5 days in café’s in both London and Kupio, Finland, Brian gave strangers one minute to decide which of his 1300 Facebook friends to keep or delete. The deleting was real, the pace was maniacal, the results were final.

50 hours of performance, 800 emails from angry, amused and intrigued friends and over 2500 comments from people watching via live stream later, Purge the stage show is an interactive performance lecture exploring the process of, and fallout from, Purge and examines how we emotionally and socially interact with digital media.

Suitable for ages 18+
