Liz Magic Laser – The Thought leader - United States - 23 + 24 September - Liz Magic Laser – The Thought leader - United States - 23 + 24 September
Before there was Upworthy and Buzzfeed and IFLScience, before your Facebook feed was an endless stream clickbait hyperbole and #viral content, there was TED, a global series of ‘inspiring’, ‘beautiful’, ‘informative’ and ‘fascinating’ 15-minute motivational talks proposing idealistic solutions to contemporary issues and other utopian visions. Gleaming the powerful oratory style and format, The Thought Leader is a satirical and sinister take on the TED Talk courtesy of rising New York-based performance artist and filmmaker Liz Magic Laser. In it, a 10-year-old child cheerfully delivers a dreary monologue adapted from Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Notes from the Underground.
