Citizen of Nowhere
“If you believe you are a citizen of the world, you are a citizen of nowhere.”
How does theatre and art respond to an increasingly binary world view? A world view which rejects the shared values that our culture has stood for: unity, diversity, empathy. We see it in Brexit, Trump and the resurgence of populism and political strongmen. It has gone hand in hand with a technological revolution the implications of which are not yet fully understood but which is causing seismic shifts throughout the world.
Citizen of Nowhere is a festival of commissions, hacks, discussions and debate exploring how theatre can use the same technology to bridge divides, engage broader audiences in new, exciting and connected ways and underpin civil society and the search shared values. It is an enquiry into the future of how and why theatre is made and for whom. Can theatre use and influence technology to bring more of us together?
Taking place in Scotland’s tech-hub Dundee, the National Theatre of Scotland invites enquiring minds to come on a journey into the future of theatre, technology and society.
