Description:

'The Sensemaker' shows a woman battling with an answering machine, trying to meet the impossible expectations of an artificial voice. Smartly dressed, standing behind a phone, she is slowly stretched to her limits.

 

Flipping between different languages and genres of music, her moves are precise as she strains to keep her tightly orchestrated routine in time. As the voice's demands become absurd, she has to choose between obedience and integrity. Will her hopes to succeed overpower her growing confusion?

 

Critical of new technologies as well as of bureaucracy, this one-woman show mixes dance, theatre, and even lip-synching, and addresses with irony the fears and frustrations of our interconnected world.
Hilarious yet uncomfortable, 'The Sensemaker' questions our capacities to resist an unjust authority.

The Sensemakerissa nainen kamppailee vastaajan kanssa, ja koettaa täyttää keinotekoisen äänen mahdottomat odotukset. Tyylikkäästi pukeutuneena, puhelimensa takana, hän pikkuhiljaa venyy rajojensa ääreen. Kieliä ja musiikkityylejä sekoittaen nainen joutuu valitsemaan tottelevaisuuden ja eheyden välillä. Teos tarkastelee kriittisesti uutta teknologiaa ja käsittelee ironisesti kytketyn maailman pelkoja ja turhautumisia.

I The Sensemaker ser vi en kvinna kämpa med en svarare, medan hon försöker möta de orimliga kraven av en artificiell röst. Stiligt klädd, fast i en telefon, dras hon sakta mot sina gränser. I en blandning av språk och musikgenrer måste hon snart välja mellan lydnad och att behålla sin integritet. Verket kritiserar modern teknologi och behandlar den sammankopplade världens rädslor och frustrationer.
