RAW! ASMR - A DEVELOPMENT | CREATED & PERFORMED BY AMY ATKINS
Discover your Tingle Immunity at this new fruity comedy about ASMR and Mukbang by award winning performer Amy Atkins. It’ll be a celebration of ASMR while also exploring the silly and wild side of the phenomenon… ASMR can take itself a bit too seriously! Do you agree? Yes, you do!
Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, more commonly known as ASMR, is a pseudo-scientific term referring to a tingling sensation some people experience from visual and/or audial stimuli such as whispering, the tapping of wood, the crinkling of paper, or attentively executed mundane tasks such as preparing vegetables.
Get ready to be fed a satire featuring solely raw produce.
Do I need to bring my own headphones and Smart Device?
