"At 0100 on Sunday morning, when Binge Culture finally throws in the towel, the venue is packed. People are sitting on the floor in front of the seats and standing two rows deep behind them. As a person who typically shuns performances longer than 90 minutes, I am surprised to find myself and so many others still gazing on with rapt attention after six hours of watching Binge Culture perform a single action that people now often perform with a single text message: 'breaking up.'"
There’s no easy way to do this… Five performers, five hours, one desperate conversation. Join Binge Culture as they lovingly create and destroy an entire relationship from scratch. Come and go as you please to witness the desperation, negotiation, devastation and emotional blackmail. #bingebreakup.
