#NoFilterNeeded is a common phrase used by social media users i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, when posting an image online that hasn’t been enhanced by any filters and is perceived to be perfect the way it is.
We are constantly bombarded by images that represent a reality far from the one we actually experience. We feel the need to state what is real and what is artificial. We impress upon the viewer that in that moment we are ‘unfiltered’, however far from the truth this may be. #NoFilterNeeded is a solo performance that explores what truly lies beneath the surface of a beautifully constructed image.
The performance is a unique audiovisual experience suitable for gallery and theatre spaces.
