Amazon - River Deep
Performed at Tanzquartier Wien 2016
This is Sophie’s last session at shopaholics anonymous.
Sophie is not only a shopaholic, she also suffers under techno-stress, data asphyxiation, information fatigue syndrome, cognitive overload, and time famine. She has decided to leave it all behind, to disconnect from the grid, return to the jungle, unplug and connect with nature. She is going to the Amazon….
Amazon - River Deep is a modern fable. It’s one woman’s story about life in an age in which the Internet has lost its narrative of equal access and sharing and has become dominated by winner-take-all companies that are now monopolizing vast swaths of our information economy.
