Homo Deus Frankenstein

Homo Deus Frankenstein

Our society is changing at an incredible speed.
Everything suddenly seems to be automated and digitized.
Sometimes even our emotions.
A violent but also exciting world to be young now!

KOPERGIETERY, MakeMake Produktionen (Vienna), I SOLISTI, KLARAFESTIVAL & the Shäxpir Festival (Linz) would like to shape this artistically in a
musical and cinematic experience for children and families. Five top musicians and performers Marjan De Schutter and Martina Rössler will enter into a dialogue with composer Frederik Neyrinck and director Johan De Smet & Sara Ostertag with a unique film by Kenneth Michiels.

Starting from the themes in the work Frankenstein (Mary Shelly) and Faust (Goethe), a contemporary story is created in which humans and robots try to become a better version of themselves. The war of robots, a GPS route to our heart, Frankenstein, on the tea site at a cyborg ....
Homo Deus Frankenstein will be a performance that reads and listens as one exciting big musical cartoon, around the many substantive questions that we ask ourselves today:

What is feasible in a young life?
Why do we so like to create 'better versions' of ourselves on social media?
Are we who we are or how we show ourselves?
When will we sell a piece of ourselves for the sake of self-interest?
Where is that difficult boundary between vulnerability and perfection
