Presentation Subtheme:

  • Symbiotic Imaginaries




  • “The Censorship of Dreams” is a multidisciplinary theater piece investigating the complex and ever-evolving relationship between our bodies, technology, language, and surveillance—in both content and form. This piece explores how technology can be used for oppression or expansion, and the struggle to express truth after language has been rendered meaningless. We are exploring theatrical representation of Brain-Computer-Interface systems and how to not just inform, but implicate and involve the audience in a new mode of society where the human mind is directly linked to technology. We believe that by bringing together artistic concepts at the forefront of technological innovation and brain science with the work of creative technologists and the ancient forms of theater that are rooted in the human body and imagination, we can offer a unique and provocative experience of symbiosis between humans and technology.
