Quite spontaneously, the Burgtheater in Vienna decide to produce a show for New Year’s Eve: Michael Maertens will play a monologue by Irish company Dead Centre and Mark O’Connell (original title: To Be A Machine). Everything is Corona, everything is digital.

The text deals with transhumanism, with humans and machines and how both merge, and with our old desire to defeat death.

Please find more information on the Burgtheater website.

The German translation of the text was accomplished by me.
