WINTER 2021

PROTAGONIST by Digital Idiots (FI)

THE SHOW

The Finnish digital first work PROTAGONIST by DIGITAL IDIOTS happens live from Helsinki and surroundings. In the first two episodes Protagonist decides to celebrate and unfold the uniqueness of now by escaping the recorded reality. What would you do if you had an hour of stolen time?

Every time Digital Idiots invites a special guest to be the PROTAGONIST. So even though there are some dogmas to follow – everything can happen…

This digital experience is a great opportunity to share an art experience with loved ones even though you’re residing in different cities, countries, continents.

The digital first show PROTAGONIST is an Internet Theatre mini-series consisting of six live-stream episodes – on youtube. It premieres 28. October 2021 – and is being presented by VIIRUS THEATRE (Helsinki, Finland) and the digital theatre festival RE: LOCATIONS (Copenhagen, Denmark) – simultaneously.

You as audience will be able to hear and see what Protagonist hears and sees via a camera installed to Protagonist’s glasses and binaural microphones. The city becomes the stage and its inhabitants turns out to be the cast. Do we have the right to see what Protagonist sees? Do we have the right to make something public that has been experienced by the private eye?
