Eye-Net: Some Like it Fake

We live in an information age. Information is the new gold. And whoever controls the information is holding gold in his hands. Research on human thinking and behavior shows us that we humans are not as rational as we imagine, and technological development has pushed the technological megaphone into our hands.

When do the news become fake? Who even wants them? Why do we hate the sin but love the sinners? Why is there no market for fake news about fruit and vegetables?

The devised performance offers a package of information wrapped in a theatrical envelope with reflection on the media, reporting and manipulation. The audience has to separate the truth from the fake.

The show is part of a wider European EYE-Net project.
