Meet the Millenials

A theatrical journey of discovery of a generation finding their voice

In theatrical lecture performance Meet the Millenials creator Lucas De Man (NL/BE) takes you on a fascinating trip: lightning fast you travel through six megacities in Asia. During the performance you meet a contemporary generation of hope in Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. The dedicated millennials, of both Europe and Asia, share the futuristic challenges of a rapidly changing and sometimes terrifying world.

Europe and Asia may know cultural differences, mostly we share common ground as we try to live the good life. How do we deal with progressive ideas on love and sex, while committing to traditional community values? And how do we face the future that keeps on closing in as robotics take over daily life? The performance play is a combination of film footage, documentary manga animations, storytelling and the most unlikely encounters with artists, scientists, social activists, students and professors.

Meet the Millennials inspires. It connects stories of daily life, work, education, artificial intelligence, emancipation and individual happiness in megacities. Lucas De Man shows the mind blowing effects of radical, fast forward thinking change. It is the story of a taboo breaking generation in East and West.

Hello Asia is a multi media art project portraying the upcoming generation of millenials in East Asia. It searches common ground and a new narrative shared by millennials in Eastern and Western parts of the world.
