After a full week of Digital creativity, ZER0|1NE final hybrid experience comes in perfect timing with the ending of 2021. Before we become emotional, we’ll meet at the Mazkeka for “Desperately Seeking”, a hybrid Zoom performance live on stage.
“ZOOM! Shake the Room ■ expert sessionz” (or just Z•Str) is live – action, role – playing game (LARP) staged as a fake intellectual panel. This means the topics are fake, and all talks are either scripted or improvised. The guests are fake, and the audience is also fake, and all are played by actors and scholars or by visitors curious to jump into discussion. In short, anyone watching can join in and influence the discussion, just like in any Q&A.
But what is the discussion about? Well, imagine a near future apocalypse caused by rebellious teens who met through a widespread wellness community called desperately seeking (DS). The DS kids all moved online. Now, they will scorch earth to preserve the web the way they want. In fact, it is a generational war, the old world must make way for a new form of digital native sentience and intelligence. In turn, to try and understand what is happening to them, the senior founders of DS hold monthly public talks with different experts – from scientists to spiritual mentors and journalists. Together with them and with you, the audience, they discuss if and whether anything can still be done.
Join desperately seeking at ZER01NE festival for the grand finale of ZOOM! Shake the Room ■ expert session #6: CUSPERZ. The event is planned in hybrid form, including performers both on stage and on zoom from all over the world.
