The Epilogue

Macao 2019 / Courtyard theater / 55 min

„The Epilog „ is a dance show made in China 2019, as a memory for the humans in 2119. „The Epilog“ is about the human body and relations in the 21. century, the way humans used to move, use their bodies, communicated with each other, have freedom of movements, speech, individual thoughts and feelings before they transformed into living applications.

„The Epilog “ is a memory of the last so called „old humans“- generation Z. From generation Z on, starts a transformation of humankind toward humans that are run by applications with nano chip-cards inside the human body.This transformation predicted to be messy, complex, and sometimes scary, but signals already point to a future of humanity that will blur our identities into “transhumanism.”

„The Epilog “ presents the last step in Darwin’s human evolution already visioned in Charlie Chaplin film "modern times“ where machines takeover on our lives or the computer takeover of man in Kubrick's "Odyssey in Space" to the brainwashing of humanity in Gorge Orwell's book “1984“. Then came the actual technological developments of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs und Mark Zuckerberg wich made Darwin turn in his grave seeing the last step of his evolution line: from monkeys to human machines.
