PERFORMANCES: Digital Eye @BlindWhino
Embassy of Sweden among others are partnering with Digital Eye @BlindWhino on an exciting, interactive event merging theater, film, a live game show and town hall-style discussion to explore how the Digital Age is affecting our everyday lives.
As technology moves towards a more intimate experience with its users, private lives become the commodity for a global market of data-miners, phishers, and hackers, confronting us with a privacy paradox: how we crave and yet forfeit our privacy. Directed by Baltimore Center Stage, Forum Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Company, and Studio Theatre and moderated by Georgetown University’s Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, Digital Eye @BlindWhino invites audiences to consider how they fit in at the dawn of a new era during four performances at Blind Whino SW Arts Club.
Each performance consists of three parts: Thought-provoking personal, artistic, and forward-thinking micro-plays and filmed performances produced by Europe’s most innovative playwrights; a Hacker Game Show with challenges revealing fun yet disturbing truths about how others predict our personalities; and a Town Hall talk with renowned international digital and privacy experts. The entire experience takes place throughout the Blind Whino, a former church that is now one of DC's most visually stunning arts venues, as the evening challenges the understanding of what it means to be a connected individual.
October 16-17, 2017 at 6:15 and 8:45 pm.
