Theater for the Digital Generation

When you think of theater, what comes to mind? Does the term ‘Digital Age’ pop up somewhere? Probably not, right? But don’t worry: since staged theater is widely perceived as more of a traditional medium, it’s just natural that we do not think of this right away.But the theater is a place to depict current subjects and social discourse. And one ongoing and very current topic is the Internet and Social Media. Obviously. (Hi, this is a blog.) Which is why the theater network cobratheater.cobra and the Theater an der Parkaue created Haus der Digitalen Jugend (House of Digital Youth) and decided to put together PRISMA – The digital Kick-Off Festival that is “kicking off” tonight.

The festival will address many questions surrounding the Digital Age, and how theater and ultimately ourselves fit into it. The audience can not only see the works but actually get involved in them. As a place where many people come together, theater serves as an ideal medium to talk about dominant subjects as a community.

With workshops like “Food Just Like at Insta” and performances like “Bodybild” directed by Martin Grünheit about gender, self-image and YouTube, PRISMA intends to develop a working base for further experiences. The House of Digital Youth will be at the Theater an der Parkaue for two years. But for now, you should come by their Kick-Off Festival PRISMA. See the detailed program here.
