PLAY ME (Origins Project)
19th - 22nd May 2021
Turin - Polo del '900
One button. A player. A screen.
Here are the new barbarians. Incomprehensible to the eyes of the adult world. Teenagers, hyper-connected and fragile, terrified and attracted by the image of themselves on “social media”, experts in “sexting”, “video-games” and “binge drinking”, owners of Smartphones as an extension of their body. But what do we know about today’s teenagers?
A narrative short circuit from the origins of the video game to the origins of the iGeneration. An immersive experience in which to meet today’s teenagers through the use of new technologies. A path of creation that tells our identities – real and virtual – thanks to the comparison between generations.
In this performance the audience will find himself in relation to them. You can choose whether to confirm or question your expectations, fears and prejudices. The ultimate goal will be a “performative game” to generate an unprecedented and intimate encounter. PLAY ME (ORIGINS PROJECT) is the result of a work on the biographies of young people met in the stage of research and dramaturgical development between Turin and Milan.
What the sociologist Morin defines as “cinema of total authenticity”.
ZONA K presents a new production: PLAY ME (Origins Project). It continues the direction already taken with Generazione gLocale in 2017 with the involvement of children, the use of new stage devices and the creative and dramaturgical support of important names in the international scene, for this project the award-winning Catalan collective Agrupación Señor Serrano.
