On Sunday, 26 May theatre group 7MRP will host a fundraising event in De Gymzaal. All proceeds will be going towards the renovation of the Gym.
“Each one of us has a role and a responsibility in pursuing civil rights and freedom, but it is so easy to acquiesce and to surrender.”
16 Minutes takes the audience on a journey through democracy and civil action as safeguards for citizen freedom in the age of digital surveillance.
We start with a theatre performance that centers on a reunion between the two childhood friends Mabur and Ulin, the latter of whom lives abroad and has returned home for a short visit. Slowly but surely, a daunting shadow creeps into the ambience, when the new political realities of Ulin’s home country start interfering with each friend’s individual fear and aspirations. Will their age-long friendship survive the recent political changes?
After the performance we engage the audience in a conversation about citizen freedom and digital surveillance. Sourcing from local and global examples of increasingly invasive digital surveillance practices, we reflect, speak up and share as a community.
A 7MRP, kladlab collective & de Gymzaal co-production.
