Circus Maximus presents:
The Best in the World – "the Virtual" and "cyborgs" in developed capitalism
Written by Jukka Heinänen. Directed by Mikko Kanninen.
Live music & videos by Pink Twins.
Premiere Wednesday 19 September 2007 @ Kiasma Theatre, Helsinki
Las Vegas is the sum of what the United States is and, most of all, would like to be: a controlled, productive, repressive, blindingly bright oasis in the middle of a cruel desert. The performance deals with a manifestation of capitalism: gambling addiction, the act of gaming and beating others at it.
Other performances: 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28 and 30 September at 7 pm. Audience discussion on 26 Sep, after the performance.
