Shiva Theater
Jan 17 & Jan 22, 2023 Run Time: 25 Minutes

ELEVATOR
Written and Directed by Mia Rovegno in collaboration with conceptual artist Tahir Karmali

It's 2020
We're working around the clock for you

And the exhaustive toll
of our infinite scroll

Means
we're here for you
Even when you’re unconscious

A tech start-up company called ThoughtThought is pitching a “human upgrade” software suite product to you. The pitch escalates into a surreal visual and sonic choral cacophony unveiling the lens of the white cis male dominating the tech world, whose performative optics claim client-facing diversity and inclusion. ELEVATOR is an immersive video installation deconstructing the elevator pitch, a capitalist ritual that promotes the morphing of personhood and product.
