GOOGLEREN (THE GOOGLER)
By Julie Petrine Glargaard (DK)
Danish original text
In Julie Petrine Glargaard’s THE GOOGLER, we meet Mads, who has taken on the task of being any internet user’s mental ‘paramedic’: Mads works for Google removing illegal material from the internet and now he is giving a lecture on digital security. But Mads is not a robot, even though the job requires all emotions to be parked when clocking in. He is also a husband and family man, and as the lecture progresses, the drawbacks of his otherwise important work become more and more apparent…
Due to COVID-19, THE GOOGLER had a digital premiere on the Royal Theatre’s website in 2020 and the work is thus available in both a live theater version and a digital version, both of which are licensed internationally by Nordiska.
