The swamp of the internet is inscrutable and growing wild. You are being drawn into it, and you cannot find up or down, and you can even perish – and die.
THE SWAMP is a performance installation about the pitfalls of the internet, and the manipulation and violence that take place underneath the radar on the dark internet.
We are spending more and more time on the internet, being online for hours, and spend a large part of our social lifes in a virtuel universe. What kind of influence does it have on us? How are we being affected and manipulated? And what kind of narratives are sucking us into the dark part of the digital univers with its consequences – personally and societal?
You are being invited into a compelling, mysterious and wild growing swamp. On the way, you lose your sense of directness, and therefore you have to take part of the responsibility for the rest of the way through the swamp. But who decides the rules of the game? And is it even a game, or the harsh reality?
THE SWAMP is the latest addition of Kassandra Production’s series about manipulation, lies and power, which has served as a launch pad for the performances HOOKED and The Soul Catcher – unmasking the modern predator?
