A performance-installation about adolescence and (over-)living, #acedesurance is designed to work on two levels: on the one hand, as a performative event in a theatrical space, on the other hand, as a narrative anchored in the virtual environment, more precisely within the TikTok network.
By directly involving teenagers in the making of these videos, #acedesiguranță aims to probe several themes relevant to the world of young people in Romania today: anxiety, identity, self-awareness, education, relationships, vulnerability, isolation.
In addition to its social relevance, such an approach also allows the exploration of new theatrical means, combining storytelling with the performative dimension of TikTok. The stakes are all the higher as TikTok is gradually changing (part of) the world we live in, something we have already seen with the outbreak of the pandemic. By adapting to new technologies, theatre can mirror and filter these transformations.
