Daniel Bye - Going Viral - Portrait resized for web

*Fringe First Award Winner 2015*

A new virus has broken out. Everyone in the world starts weeping. What now?

Going Viral is a show about how things spread. Drawing on the science of epidemics, it explores the spread of disease, of panic, of ideas. It shows how our society reacts, and how our connected world makes us all more vulnerable - and more human. But not equally so.

How do you behave when it's impossible to tell symptoms from distress? Is panic airborne too? What’s spreading through this theatre, here, tonight?

Going Viral is a new development in Daniel's trademark blend of comedy, storytelling and performance lecture.
