And the Internet has democratised overly. But you know what? People love hierarchy. It infuriates them but it makes them horny. It’s gold dust.
Anna. 25. Curator. I ? art, fashion, NYC.
Ariel. 32. CEO @Genesis. A dating app by invite only. SF-NYC-LDN.
It’s all about concept, and it’s so easy. Anna and Ariel, they make the world. They curate and create and know what people want. The fashionistas, the art scene, the elite party circuit. Outsiders who infiltrate, who influence, who dazzle. Appearance is everything. And then it isn’t. And there’s a price to pay.
A story about narcissism inspired by real events, Joseph Charlton’s Anna X premiered at the VAULT Festival, 2019, and transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre, London, in July 2021.
The last line is “Perfect” – and that about sums this play up.
'Exciting in its ambition, originality and execution... It’s frenetic, fun and ultra-cool.'
'I hope that Joseph Charlton continues to write for the theatre... At times, watching Anna X, I got a sense that he might have a work within him as profound and tantalisingly irreducible as Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen.'
'It feels fresh, exciting, as shiny as a Jeff Koons sculpture... This show is a blast.' 'What makes Anna X so entertaining is the sharpness of Charlton’s dialogue and a multimedia staging that helps to make the storytelling vivid and quick... the sheer swish with which two people – and a lot of video – summon up a world in which appearances are everything.'
