This work by Spreafico Eckly and Theatre Replacement uses a 2006 magazine article from the New York Times Magazine about Roger Federer to explore how social awareness has shifted over the last 14 years.

This monolog for two people, an actor and a sound designer, asks you to observe a person - a person whose voice is being repeatedly modulated through digital means - try to reconcile a 14- year-old piece of writing with their conflicted contemporary conditions. It’s a surgical though meandering task that questions how much a sheering social context should influence the reading of the written word.
