In 2019, Canadian poet Rose Condo created The Empathy Experiment, asking if empathy faced extinction because of our addictions to mobile devices.

The Empathy Experiment received critical acclaim and was set to tour internationally in 2020.

And then … the world changed.

Rose brings a revised version of the show to live audiences. Still a careful blend of poetry and prose, The Empathy Experiment 2.0 now looks different in a post-pandemic climate. In this one-hour performance, Rose explores new questions about our relationship with – and to – technology in this modern age.
