The sharing of sexually explicit selfies has become the norm for many young people.
This was the starting point for Viralize. In working with young men and women through drama workshops, residencies and interviews, some of the complex stories behind this fact began to come to life. We discovered that social media can be an added pressure in remaining popular and fitting in with friends. This can be made worse by the amount of personal and sexual information that is shared online. Taking a naked selfie can feel fun and safe in your own bedroom but once the image has been posted publicly, it can never be completely deleted.
Toured Greenwich, Bexley, Southwark, Wandsworth and Medway in Autumn 2015.
