Log in to Virtual Reality. Can You Tell What is Real?
The beginning of the performance seems like logging in to a computer game. The characters who are trapped in Ultraworld, a virtual reality inside the game, keep getting tested, which gradually alters their behaviors. Frank, however, is the hero who needs to break this repetitive situation. And unlike the others, he needs to make decisions all by himself… <Ultraworld> is produced in 2020 by Susanne Kennedy, a leading director at the distinguished Volksbuhne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz Berlin who has been presenting recently the most exciting works in German theater scene. The journey of a hero inside the virtual reality who cannot control the game starts to reveal similarities with our reality. Depicted as a labyrinth with different patterns and landscapes, the world inside the game really pulls in the audience. When you leave the theater after logging out from the game “Ultraworld,” a question you have failed to ask will arise.
