Production Details / Press Releases
Somewhere in the so called developed world, in a future not so far from now: The global problems that kept us busy for centuries weren’t solved nor escalated dramatically. Basically, everything is still the way it was at the beginning of the 21st century, but much faster, harder, more intense, much much MORE. The human ego is not the master in its own house anymore, but a nexus of flows: flows of data, commodities, and consciousness, viruses, crises, euphoria. Everything is in everything and everything is fucking close. The flows traverse the human being on every level: body, feelings, thoughts and will. It is a material thing, an animal, a child, a machine and its operator at the same time, but in a way it is not really, not fully human anymore.
DrawnOnward is a possibility engine, an everything you need kind of machine. DrawnOnward is a process of un and re becoming what we are.
DrawnOnward is NOW on crack, a stroboscopic disco in the excess of code. DrawnOnward is two assholes in a room. And sexually explicit.
DrawnOnward is a corporate corporal coping mechanism for the things that did not change in the future.
DrawnOnward is an operator and a test subject.
DrawnOnward expresses a shared passion for innovation, design, aesthetics, and utility in an environment that inspires people to discover.
DrawnOnward is a limitless borderless, a happy convergence of ideas. DrawnOnward is drawn onward, it is what it does.
DrawnOnward is a palindrome, no matter from which angle you approach it – it works!
“DrawnOnward” generates a multiverse of possible and inevitable futures and their recreated, reenacted, (mis)remembered pasts. Working in collaboration with the choreographer Juli Reinartz, musician Marc Lohr, writer John-Erik Jordan, costume designer Grzegorz Matlag and dramaturge Maximilian Haas, Jeremy Wade embraces the world-making technologies of queer science fiction to preprogram and reorient the conditional network we call the universe at present.
The production “DrawnOnward” was prepared in the public reading group “Moi Machine Moi” at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, spring 2015. Organized and moderated by Jeremy Wade and Kerstin Stakemeier the group was discussing theoretical positions on a queer notion of Science Fiction, such as Donna Haraway, Karen Barad, Deleuze/Guattari, Gilbert Simondon, Alex Galloway, N. Katherine Hayles among others.
