Taking place in the commercial Finnkino cinema hall in Turku, the theater performance News 2.0 demonstrated how theatre can not only investigate, edit and perform real news, but also question the very structure and motives of news making.
News 2.0 consisted of 3 shows where each show differed from the others not only in the actual news reported, but also in theme and the different fields of expertise of the invited guests. Each show was created in collaboration with the whole working group. Each show also contained artistic reflections on the most resent news items, in practice that meant producing artistic content on extremely short notice. In that way the creative process was challenging the forms in which performing arts are rehearsed and prepared for the final performance.
