Project. The project focuses on the question of how we construct “reality” from an existing flood of contradictory information. Digital media appear on an equal footing with the stage, and the stage and film events are supplemented by additional information that the audience receives via smartphone, leading them to contradictory perspectives on the plot and characters. The premiere in Gelsenkirchen will be followed by further development in Bremen and Darmstadt in the same season.
