De Internet Trilogie
Performancecollectief URLAND

The performance collective URLAND, 'the whizzkids of the theatre', according to de Volkskrant, made three performances under the title The Internet Trilogy. URLAND searches for contrasts and connections between Prometheus and the Internet, the digital fire of the twentieth century according to the makers. Prometheus, 'he who looks ahead', stole the fire from the gods and thereby brought mankind progress, self-development and modernity.

In de pers

“The existentaialist fear of our times is that our human brains have already failed to keep up with our own creation, AI. De Internet Trilogie is a thoroughly watchable compound of ways to stare this fear in the face.”
Movement Exposed

“Urland biedt uiteindelijk geen verontrustend dystopisch toekomstvisioen, maar ontpopt zich zo als een pleidooi voor echt leven in plaats van louter virtueel.”

“De grenzeloosheid van het virtuele universum jaagt ook angst aan. Als een wereld digitaliseert, verdwijnen bepaalde analoge elementen. Wie meer virtueel wordt, moet iets menselijks opgeven. […] Nu valt vooral een sluimerende angst te ontwaren voor eenzaamheid in een uitdijend, digitaal universum.”

"De prijs die we voor technologie betalen, is niet alleen onze ziel maar ons hele lichaam. Dat stelt althans performancecollectief Urland in een mysterieuze, muzikale voorstelling."
