ON/LIVE – The theatre of the digital natives

Friday, May 10th, 7:00 p.m. – Sunday, May 12th, 9:30 p.m., 2019
FFT (Forum Freies Theater) Kammerspiele/Juta, Düsseldorf
Organizer: 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 brings together digital natives from art, science, schools and politics and asks 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 lightningtalks, discussions, performances and workshops the FFT negotiates 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.

Klaas Werner (Office medienwerk.nrw/Anna Kpok) moderated the discussion.
