After enchanting audiences with his zany and caustic reinterpretation of the legend of La Chasse-galerie in 2016, multidisciplinary artist 2Fik returns to the FTA. A wizard of transformation, he designs his own dating app and flamboyantly embodies a hundred different profiles, each with their own physical characteristics, ideas of love, expectations, and sexual criteria. Choose your own potential partner!

2Fik explores the vagaries of romance in the digital age. Though they are designed to make people feel less isolated, these apps instead tend to discard differences, refusing bodily diversity, and formatting human beings, leaving them as lonely as ever. The performer alternates between humour and cruelty, wavering between fantasy and reality, and becomes the master of a role-playing game that questions the dynamics of seduction at play in the age of dating apps.  The performance lasts eight days, and for over seven hours daily, 2Fik simultaneously chats with several audience members and goes on to meet them. You can choose to be the seducer or the seduced, a participant or a mere witness. Love in the age of profile pics.
