In C\:>how2become (data) & dissolve_into: ‘tears’ performance and performativity migrate from the physical space into the virtual realm. The performers’ bodies and theatrical space itself are dematerialized and originate new digital interactions and non-anthropomorphic possibilities of representation. Following transmedia premises, the narrative is divided into four chapters, each corresponding to a different medium.


Chapter 1 – From November 20th to December 17th
Audience members that purchase a ticket during this period will receive the first chapter of this performative event in book format.

Chapter 2 – January 4th to 9th between 2PM and 10PM at TBA
In this chapter, audience members that have already purchased tickets will be invited by telephone for an individual meeting with the performers.
Duration: 30 min.

Chapter 3 – January 18th to 22nd 7:30 pm, in the Main Room of the TBA
The third chapter happens on stage in the Main Auditorium of TBA.
Duration: 65 min.(approx.)

Chapter 4 – From January 18th
The last chapter of the event can be accessed online.
