What do big tech, synthesizers, the crucifixion and Matthäus Passion have in common? Find the answer in the tech performance The Silicon Passion. Medialab SETUP is taking over Theater Kikker next Easter weekend. With the première on Easter Sunday.
We’ve all embraced big tech —but is it a warm hug or a strangulation? Bear witness to a debate of biblical proportions between tech nerds, technology and its users. In The Silicon Passion SETUP, in collaboration with de Transmissie (David Schwarz en Derk Stenvers) and Rodrigo Ferreira, is looking for a way out of the pit that technology has created for them. They draw inspiration from one of the most important stories about penance: the crucifixion. They want to find out exactly who or what should be nailed to the cross, and what the world might look like after a resurrection.Taking the St Matthew Passion as a starting point, both for the valuable lessons as well as musical inspiration. Armed with Bachst’ St Matthew Passion and synthesizers we will look for a new way of dealing with big tech.
