Dramaturge Clara Brennan

English language premiere of the award winning German Play.
We want to be supermodels or get on TV, because otherwise we’ll just sit at our computers anonymously hating each other.
And Now: The World! is a story about being young in a digital world; about being a superhero caught in a web; about being able to spend more time with your friends online than face to face. If your whole life is online, can you start a revolution and stay #ontrend?
The internet is a world of possibilities, but what happens to humans when we get information overload and our interface points don’t overlap?
WARNING OpenWorks Theatre are not putting the internet on stage.
We are staging the effect of the internet on human beings.
Expect an unfamiliar visual language, arresting imagery and unusual devices.
And Now: The World! was awarded Theater Heaute’s German Play of The Year Award. Martin Crimp won its foreign language counterpart, so OpenWorks are thrilled to have the rights to the British premier.
