Are you an influencer or a troll who is still in the closet? Your likes reveal everything about you and are used to manipulate you into buying and watching. They can even influence which party you vote for. Experience the power of digital platforms during this absurdist and interactive performance.

In The Social Sorting Experience by The Smartphone Orchestra, theater, gaming and music come together, and you play the leading role along with your smartphone! And maybe you'll make some new, good old-fashioned, analog friends at the same time. The performance fits in perfectly with the perceptions and social media use of young people. In this theatrical experience, they can experience for the first time how much influence digital platforms truly have and how much data they actually give away.
