Utopia and Slavery (a piece for choir of 25 mechanical voices) is a voice-based action, but without any live performance, as the whole development is based on the reproduction of recorded voices through various cassette players.

The action aims to be a dissection of today's digital world: to address the idea that the digital economy and the new forms of the so-called collaborative economy have turned people first into clients and then into users, stripped of collective and individual rights beyond the dynamics of consumption. We have quickly forgotten the utopia that the Internet represented in the beginning, to become people at the service of the digital era.

Limited seating, 25-minute screenings.
