In between mass distractions and digital mutations, we move about in an environment augmented by the media. Overloaded by information we live in a state of constant alertness that our ancestors only experienced in battle. Overload is a theatre show which takes on a hypertext structure. As a speech is being delivered, performers relentlessly offer links to hidden contents, which in turn trigger possible actions and images. The audience can choose either to ignore these links - and continue to listen to the speech - or to activate them. This performance is in English, with Chinese subtitles, by Sotterraneo, a Florentine theater company that was founded in 2005.
