In a dystopic near future humanity got rid of politicians: “they were too corrupt and detached from the needs of ordinary people”.
Humanity, therefore, created a new technological form of the democratic decision process: the digital app “TRIC” which will select two completely ordinary citizens to lead the debate during a gameshow: Mat, a very shy, awkward guy who has a background in technology and programming and Jess, a housewife trying to be an influencer but not really sure why. The play follows the two contestants as they compete in a gameshow, i.e. a series of debates. Here the app TRIC invites the spectators to vote for their preferred candidate..
An international cast (USA, Colombia, Italy) in a multimedia show that questions “augmented democracy” and civic participation, reality and representation, character and persona, visibility and intimacy through the lens of a game show. What is reality and what is representation? What is acting and what is not?
