In times like these, it’s good to have a VFF.

“VFF” explores friendship through one-hour video chats. Only 28 people can take part in these one-on-one experiences (one per day), hanging out over FaceTime with award-winning performance artist and actor Brian Feldman.

What is a friendship worth? How do we make friends? What does being friends actually mean? Brian explores these questions and more by offering you an opportunity to define friendship.

As Washington City Paper wrote, “See It If: You want a new conceptual artist friend to hang out with in real life.”

Presented as part of the 2021 Sydney Fringe Festival, “VFF” is a modified social distancing version of “BFF,” which premiered in a sold-out 50 show run as part of the 2012 Capital Fringe Festival.

This event takes place over FaceTime. In order to participate, you must have an iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 10.0 or later, an iPad with iPadOS 10.0 or later, or a Mac with OS X Lion 10.7 or later. You will receive a FaceTime video call from Brian Feldman at the phone number you provide when booking your ticket. Please make sure your device is charged. All times are in AEST (UTC+10).

    “(★★★★) This show offers the most personal attention this reviewer has ever encountered and a performance artist who is trying – and succeeding – to encourage audience and performer interaction.” DC Metro Theater Arts

    “(★★★★) By its end, “VFF” has accomplished what it was designed to do. The production’s [hour] had me both interacting with a stranger and constantly examining my own feelings about the interactions.” DC Theatre Scene

    “ enjoyable [hour] of carte blanche to ask a stranger anything you want to know about himself – and to get things off your chest that you’re not comfortable admitting to the people who know you... You can tell him absolutely anything and at the end of your [hour], it won’t matter.” The Washington Post

    “Like a good first date, it was low-key and relaxed, and I had purchased [an hour] of the gentleman’s company on the internet.” Washington City Paper

    “Verdict: 5 stars. Better than most first dates where I don’t think there will be a second date.” Texarkana Dispatch
