I Watched Someone Die on Tik Tok was previously presented in Live Dreams: DEATHS by Performance Space and Carriageworks.

Calling all digital voyeurs. 

My algorithm has it out for me. Giving me whiplash between 911 calls, dash cam crash footage, cancer patients in their last moments, and cartel drug deals gone wrong.

I Watched Someone Die on Tik Tok is a relentless, dark comedy that deep dives into the power our algorithms have over us and the abject terror we can find at the swipe of a finger.
