“The piece has a non-linear approach. “It has a TV format of cutting and quick changes that go from episode to episode. If you watch the piece as a whole, it does remind you of the media and how fast it shifts. We are covering a lot of ground,” Lorca says.
GOING LIVE! is a satirical look at what’s current in our lives: an exploration of how media and technology infiltrate our humanity, turning truth on its heels and causing absurd chaos in our world. Nowadays anything can happen: lies become truth, sinners become stars, and whether we like it or not, we the people are the consumers and spectators of it all. Do we live in a world of hyper-informed citizens and techno junkies, or are we gradually becoming media zombies?
