Manifesto Artistic Team: director Carlos García Estévez, assistant director and co-creator Paige Allerton, lighting designer Paulo Serantes, worked hard to deliver the message of the more than 120 devising cast members in this multidisciplinary show. The young artists participating in this process were asked to talk about their anxieties, fears and desires for the society they see today in the Netherlands, and globally in this highly connected, informationalized world that has been gifted with social media.
