Utopia and Slavery Performance

Utopia i esclavatge [Utopia and Slavery] is an action by Eduard Escoffet that revolves around the voice, but in which there is no live voice. Rather, its entire development is based on the reproduction of the recorded voice by means of different cassette players. The action addresses the idea that the digital economy and the new forms of so-called collaborative economy have transformed us, first and foremost, into customers and, as a result, into users dispossessed of collective and individual rights beyond the dynamics of consumption. We have quickly forgotten the utopia that the Internet represented in its beginnings to progressively become digital slaves. Produced by La Capella within the framework of BCN Producció 2022, it is presented here again, this time in a special setting: the anatomical theatre of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Catalonia.

Performances at 8:30 pm., 9:30 pm. and 10:30 pm.
