ON/LIVE – The theatre of the digital natives

Fri, 10.05.2019, 7pm – Sun, 12.05.2019, 9:30pm

Office medienwerk.nrwSymposium

A cooperation between FFT Düsseldorf, Institute for Art and Art Theory, University of Cologne, City Libraries of the City of Düsseldorf, Office medienwerk.nrw.

In the near future there will be only one theatre: The theatre of the digital natives. It belongs to those who can no longer imagine a world without digital networking, smart devices and social networks. The symposium ON/LIVE brought together digital natives from art, science, schools and politics and asked how we will meet in the future – in theatre and in everyday life. Which narratives and modes of perception determine our present and how do we shape the future together? In lightning talks, discussions, performances and workshops the FFT negotiated media practices in everyday life and the arts. Among other things, the FFT is dedicated to the net as a sphere of new gender configurations and to the game as a performative practice of the future.

“Games are the new normal”, declared Al Gore in 2011. Since then, at the latest, we have known that interest in games has also reached the political and economic spectrum. We talked about games as a cultural form, artistic practice and profitable entertainment media.
