Meet the Millennials
In theatrical lecture performance Meet the Millenials creator Lucas De Man (NL/BE) takes you on a fascinating trip: lightning fast you travel through six megacities in Asia. During the performance you meet a contemporary generation of hope in Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. The dedicated millennials, of both Europe and Asia, share the futuristic challenges of a rapidly changing and sometimes terrifying world.
Europe and Asia may know cultural differences, mostly we share common ground as we try to live the good life. How do we deal with progressive ideas on love and sex, while committing to traditional community values? And how do we face the future that keeps on closing in as robotics take over daily life? The performance play is a combination of film footage, documentary, manga animations, storytelling and the most unlikely encounters with artists, scientists, social activists, students and professors.
Meet the Millennials inspires. It connects stories of daily life, work, education, artificial intelligence, emancipation and individual happiness in megacities. Lucas De Man shows the mind blowing effects of radical, fast forward thinking change. It is the story of a taboo breaking generation in East and West.
Meet the Millennials is part of project Hello Asia, initiated by New Heroes. The performance aims to inspire as many people as possible, also outside of the theatre. Therefore we love to visit festivals, congresses, universities and all other places where we can connect. Check our website for more information: www.projecthelloasia.com
