Let’s have a look into the future! But we are facing a future that seems to be chaotic, dark, overwhelming and disturbing. Due to the corona virus we expand even more into digital worlds where we find no structures and ways to connect, but where we can also get lost and alienated. What are we connected to? How does our reality feel like? Are we lost to the world? Is the world lost to us? The literary temple is the archive of the internet.
Text and movements are mainly taken from texts and movements from the world wide web. Sampling, imitation, travestie or mimikry are the common ground for the performative action. The aim is to develop a collage of voice, body, sound and surrounding in order to depict the simultaneity of digital environment but also to explore the current situation and to ask for strategies to face the future with courage and joy?
