Say, oh, say my magic mirror, who is the most beautiful of them all?
Pray tell, oh, magic mirror, who is the most popular of them all?
Show me, oh, magic mirror, exactly what I want to see!
Tell me exactly what I want to hear, so my sadness would disappear
And I won't have to shed even one more tear!
Be a part of the last Millennial Magic Mirror performance premiered in 2018. At that time, the performance reflected a rapid increase in the generation of millennials' interest in social networks - at the moment we wouldn't even be able to work without online communication. Experience with us the reflection of the online world in the bodies of dancers - how it affects their emotional state, interpersonal relationships or ability to communicate with each other.
Millennial Magic Mirror examines the use and abuse of new technology, social networks, humanity and artificial intelligence. There's a place where we interact both with people and robots. In this virtual space, the relationship of these two worlds is intertwining. The bots are becoming more human, the humans start to act more and more like bots. It is supposed to be a place for networking and deeper interaction, but in this ocean of information solitude reigns.
Before the performance, you will receive an email with a link to the ONLINE STREAM.
The performance will be followed by a moderated discussion with the creators, whom you can ask questions about the creative process and learn more about their experiences with followers of fake instagram profiles.
