You're not alone
In his classic performance, sad comedian Kim Noble shows the depths of human longing in the digital age.
It’s impossible to categorize Kim Noble: The prize-winning British performance- and video-artist is either someone who dramatically violates the private sphere of others, or the most convincing comedian since Andy Kaufman, or both. In YOU'RE NOT ALONE, »Kim Noble« is on the search for human closeness – pursuing a supermarket cashier, calling the numbers left on truck-stop toilet walls and contacting male internet users for sex while pretending to be a woman, then meeting them with disastrous results. Noble filmed these scenarios in secret. He presents the videos and their stories live to an audience that vacillates between horror and laughter, and eventually doesn’t know what to think. Noble tells a deeply moving story about people’s loneliness in the era of digital interconnectedness and surveillance. Since the 2013 premiere of YOU ARE NOT ALONE, has become a globally shown performance-art classic that draws in its audience emotionally like hardly any other piece.
