PIOTR TROJAN

Grind/r

DIRECTED BY: PIOTR TROJAN

    Piotr Trojan’s play is based on a record of a number of authentic meetings, arranged through  the gay dating app, Grindr. The project shows the hidden life of the metropolis, while at once analyzing the phenomenon of sex in the digital era. In the past, finding the right lover demanded time and effort, today, it is a matter of swiping the screen on our smartphones. What is the impact of new technologies on interpersonal relations? How do dating apps change the mores of our times? Is Grindr really where all your dreams can come true?
