A Science Fiction performance about the future of humans.

“The stimulating content, combined with the top ensemble, makes Brave new world 2.0 one of the most intriguing performances of this theater season.”⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  (NRC)

After terrific reactions from the audience, excellent reviews for the productions Carrousel and Salam, and winning the Director’s Award 2018, theatre lovers can’t wait to see 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?

“Innovative total theatre.” (Trouw)

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.

“This is not a show, but an experience” (Dagblad van het Noorden)

SPOILER ALERT

“The plot focuses on three characters, who find their way in an oppressive future. CEO’s have a worldwide control, robots are lifelike and people aren’t born but ‘made’. Outside the walls of this organized society, the outcasts, the people who could not come along or did not want to conform, live in chaos. Programmer Kris wants to break out of the system, but at the same time has a great fascination for the androids that – unlike people – never fall into disrepair. Colleague Alex holds on tightly to her work, until she gets feelings for Evelyn (Angela Herenda) and her rationalism fades into the background. Troy also tries to escape from his imposed role. All doubt and make radical decisions. In the meantime, society tries to force them back into familiar patterns with varying degrees of success. ” – NRC Handelsblad
