Some Like it Fake / EYE.net 2.0
The play ‘Some like it fake’ will be performed as part of the theatre festival created as a result of the EYE.net 2.0 project (European Youth Engagement Network 2.0), on 6 April at 6 p.m. at the SCC Factory. The play will be performed by project participants from Slovenia, and the festival is part of the Schools of the Future programme unit, which focuses on young people and their involvement in artistic, educational, and social activities.
About the play:
0 = gold gold = 0 0 and 1 = data data is gold and gold is dirty
We live in an age of information. Data is the new gold. The one who controls the data holds the gold in his hands. Human behaviour and reasoning analysis tell us that we are not as rational as we would like to be, and technological evolution has given us a smart-mega-phone. When does the news become fake? Who craves this and who wants false information? Why do we condemn sin and praise sinners? Why is there no false news about fruits and vegetables?
The play on the topic of media, reporting and manipulation is the gift of a package of data and information. The audience must separate the wheat from the chaff themselves.

About the festival:
The theatre festival, created within the EYE.net 2.0 project, will be held from 5 to 8 April in Novi Sad high schools and Zone 021. By turning schools into art scenes and cultural institutions into centres of education, the ‘EYE.net’ project engages young people who, through working with excellent artists as mentors, create their own content, i.e., theatre performances. Their topics are current and acceptable to a wider audience, and some of the frameworks for young people to create in include Euroscepticism, solidarity, fake news, ecology, anti-fascism, economy, and others.
Participants from each country chose one topic to tackle, from 5 to 8 April, fans of the engaged theatre will have the pleasure to see the Czech play ‘Marshal Konev’s Last Battle’, the French play ‘Turn Before the Ruins’, a play from Germany ‘Why?’, a play by a group of young people from Greece ‘Unwritten Land’, ‘Do You Like Tomato Sauce?’ from Italy, ‘The Noise of the Silence’ from Lithuania, as well as ‘Testament’ from Serbia. After or during each of the performances there will be an interactive debate with the young audience.
Admission to all festival performances is free.
