Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Bebo, YouTube, how can we now survive without them? Is this the only way to express ourselves, to define who we really are? Are we succeeding?
Grace Online is the development of a new work: a postmodern operetta which blurs the lines between modernism and kitsch. It looks at how we strive for authentic individuality in a culture where we are apparently all communicating in the same way, all with the same set of rules: we are all the same!
Pushing the boundaries of modern performance and using multi-media environments, Grace Online will challenge your perspective on music, performance and interaction. We will therefore be looking at online identities, the manner of modern human communication, and the quest for true individuality.
