Akademgorodok - Silicon Forest

post theater

Science and technology are meant to improve the world. But how and where do people conduct their research beset? In a metropolis or at a remote lab at the end of the world? In South-Siberia there is a science city called Akademgorodok since the late 50ies, a very successfull place with particle accelerators, fusion reactors, and, as of recently, Start-Ups and IT companies. What happens to a utopian dream of an ideal science city in the age of globalization - the era of migrating „high-potentials“ - the so called brain-drain? post theater set up an A.I., an artificial intelligence, that organizes the evening and asks contemporary dancers to feed input. The audience witnesses a special experiment that fuses worlds as diverse as the USSR, Silicon Valley and Science Fiction cities.
