In ”35 X ME AND SOME ACTRESSES”, seven actresses will practically share the actress's professional secrets - experiences from the theater's 2500-year-old tradition - in aim to give the audience the tools and strategies to facilitate the construction of their online identities.
From the notes of the working group: "The need for revolutionary training”
As a consequence the increased use of so-called "social media” among the ”private individuals”, the working group's recommendation is that "private individuals" receive training in the use of "social media”.
The ”private person” who signs up for the performance will be instructed further.
