Electronic City
written by Falk Richter
translated by Daniel Brunet
directed by Wayne Pearn
Globalisation, communication, digitalisation, standardisation, disorientation ... disintegration.

Electronic City is a burgeoning, all encompassing, uber techno metropolis where flexibility and resilience is paramount for success and survival.

BER: Berlin, MEL: Melbourne, TPE: Taipei, JFK: New York, FCO: Rome, MAD: Madrid – Tom hasn’t any idea what city he is in ... he’s moving so fast he’s going nowhere.

Tom's great love, Joy, is working the check out at the ‘ready to eat’ store in an airport – she dreams of George Clooney and longs for Tom ... her life is being filmed in a reality documentary soap.

Joy's infrared scanner has broken down as the queue of impatient corporates grows larger ... the system has crumpled.

The global conveyor belt has ceased – this is Electronic City.

“A fairy tale for media times”
Fischerverlage – Theater & Medien

“... a panic-stricken farce from the inner mental world of contemporary busyness ...”
