Brave New World 2.0


Performance about love, life and suffering at the time of algorithms

11 Feb 20 May 2019

Language No Problem, English surtitles

Something remarkable is happening in Groningen, at least in the theatre.” (De Volkskrant) 
One of the most exciting big theatre performance groups.” (Parool) 
Innovative total theatre.” (Trouw)
This is not a show, but an experience” (Dagblad van het Noorden) 

After terrific reactions from the audience, excellent reviews for the productions Carrousel and Salam, and winning the Director’s Award 2018, we are looking forward to the next project by director Guy Weizman. In both style and substance, Weizman’s productions are urgent, entertaining and inspiring.

Brave New World 2.0 examines the future of humanity. The divided society predicted by Aldous Huxley in his 1932 novel, Brave New World, was meant as a warning but already seems recognizable to the modern day reader. Artificial intelligence, robots and hyper-intelligent algorithms create opportunities but also raise an important question: is the world becoming a better place through these technological developments, or do they only increase an already existing inequality between the haves and have-nots?  

Inspired by Brave New World, but also by the works of Naomi Klein (This changes everything, No is not enough), Thomas Picketty (Capital in the Twenty-First Century) and Yuval Harari (Sapiens, Homo Deus), director Guy Weizman and writer Rik van den Bos create an arresting, in your face Brave New World 2.0 that’s relevant to our modern times. A production with 23 actors, dancers and musicians that will force the audience to think and act.

Compositions supported by The Performing Arts Fund NL.

Together we make at least one large hall production per year that goes on tour through the Netherlands and Flanders. We form an interdisciplinary ensemble with dancers who act, musicians who dance, actors who sing …
