“Tinder meets Black Mirror” – Page to Stage (4 stars)

Join Michelle for the launch of Manimals – a new dating app that makes dating fun and gets you swiping on men posing with exotic animals.

Michelle draws on her own experiences of dating, love, and game design in this interactive show, guaranteed to get you on the fast track to love! But when you try to win a partner at all costs, what do you lose?

Manimals is playful, interactive, and offers a glimpse into the world of online dating inspired by the artist’s real-life dating experiences and past relationships.
