GKW – HOMO DIGITALIS
«homo digitalis» focuses on new working methods in an increasingly digital world. In their second joint project – after «Mein Enkel 2072» –Moira Gilliéron, Ariane Koch and Zino Wey take a closer look at how our working lives are changing beyond recognition, stuck in front of computer screens in a world of global networks. What impacts are these changes having on mankind as a social being? And how can the digital world be conceived? Four performers embark on a utopian search for answers to these questions. The starting point of their research is the Internet platform fiverr.com, where they will purchase the majority of the props and contents for $5, thus transforming their piece into a centre of trade for a global, digitally networked theatre business.
A production by GKW in co-production with Kaserne Basel and Theater Winkelwiese Zürich.
Guest performance at Ballhaus Ost, Berlin.
