WUNDERBAUM speelt LIVE (online gaat het mis)
Reluctantly - because we don't want to appear old - but with the thought that it is about time to make a performance about our screen time. Ever since the iPhone made its massive glorious entry into our country in 2008, we have been 'hooked'. Our behaviour changed, generational gaps revealed themselves.
As parents and educators, we are mildly to heavily concerned. We hear stories of children adopting different identities in 20 WhatsApp groups, secretly keeping a second phone on it, participating in anorexia challenges on the dark web and preferring to celebrate New Years Eve with their friends online in 'World of Warcraft'. Or is this all grossly exaggerated and should we stick to the love-attention-and-trust mantra so characteristic of our generation of parents?
And what right do we really have when we regularly find ourselves scrolling at a screen ourselves as our child talks to us? Or when we surf from current affairs to Funda late into the night in between series?
WUNDERBAUM speelt live (online gaat het mis) is a performance that does not shy away from one of the most pressing questions of this century: How much of our time do we want to spend online?
