An aeroplane flies from Uganda to England. Everyone on board is weeping.
Everyone except you.
On the ground, the weeping spreads. Is it a strange new disease? An outbreak of hysteria? Or has the world become genuinely sad?
In this uncanny, high-definition world we are all more connected, more vulnerable, and more human – or are we?
Daniel Bye, the award-winning maker of The Price of Everything and How to Occupy An Oil Rig, presents an urgent, fantastical story from the front line of an epidemic. Intimate and epic, hilarious and tragic, Going Viral is a unique blend of storytelling, playful comedy and performance lecture.
