Description
On his 30th birthday, Brian Lobel played the world’s most brutal game of friendship maintenance: over 5 days in public cafes, Brian 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 live stream 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 digital media.

“Probing the basis of why we choose people to befriend and why they want to be our friends is fascinating, and Lobel poses this idea with so much charm that you might feel that you want him to be your friend. Or do you?” -The Latest, Brighton (4.5 stars
