Abstract

A collection of writing featuring the script of Purge, the stage show, alongside lots of extras including reflective essays, interviews with other artists who have completed performed Purge, additional angry emails from former Facebook friends,
and more.

About Purge:
Over 5 days, Brian Lobel 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 livestream 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 social media.
