(R)evolution

A guide to survival in the 21st century

Inspired by Yuval Noah Harari

A play by Yael Ronen and Dimitrij Schaad
Directed by Ilan Ronen

 

Man is about to become God. Or is he on the verge of abolishing himself through limitless mechanization and exploitation of the planet? Yuval Noah Harari is one of today's most exciting thinkers. His “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” are a global inventory that in times of chaos and enormous uncertainty has no longer cast doubt on our behavior and our individual morals as compellingly as it has been for a long time.


The digital revolution that is making our lives easier is full of promise - it is the end of the decision-making drama. At the same time, the tech euphoria with its unlimited possibilities will ask great questions about being human.  Yael Ronen designs a world in which the characters have to confront the challenges of the next evolutionary stage, Homo Digitalis: their own insignificance when billions of people are forced out of the job market by algorithms, symbiotic relationships with artificial intelligence and virtual realities. Digital dictatorships in which our data becomes a tool in the hands of a few - or the ethical dilemmas that come with the unforeseeable consequences of genetic design. And what does the whole thing actually mean for so-called “free will”? Within this experimental set-up, Yuval Noah Harari's thoughts become the starting point for a research that reduces the contradictions of a possible future to absurdity. Are there utopias of living together that we have missed forever?
