Utoperas

Young people write youth chat opera in series format

More online, less alone! 

Inspired by themes from Yewegeni Samyatin's dystopian sci-fi novel Wir, 40 students from the Neue Mittelschulen Josef-Enslein Platz and Herzgasse have spent the past few months developing their own participatory youth opera with artists from the Vienna State Opera and Superar. 

The now created work Utoperas tells within three episodes pictures of a dystopian future of an almost totalitarian online world. This world thrives on lively messaging and a constant (co-)sharing of personal, but also superficial content, and only becomes silent at certain times of the day - during private hours. While the new rules of the self-appointed admin gradually influence the reality of the young people's lives and even dictate how they should behave, the young protagonists Sarah, Gabriel and Vanessa ask themselves: How visible or invisible do I want to be? Why is it good to be in a group? And when is it important to stand up for one's own needs and points of view?
