Hacker theatre troupe in Berlin to stage “When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth”

This is pretty cool: Berlin's C-base hackerspace has spawned a theatre troupe called C-atre. They've produced a theatrical adaptation of my short story "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" (from my collection Overclocked) and they're staging it later this month at Berlin's Transmediale festival.

    And there's a typo: "C-atre" not "C-artre"... Still, it's an artsy typo^^

    You're welcome!

    I went to c-base last night to find more about the theatre project. Unfortunately noone of that group was present, but one of the residents gave me a tour of the station. She really has everything you expect from a reconstructed orbit station: a 3D printer, a fully automated book scanner, an energy producing symbiont on the ceiling of the gentlemen's bathroom, etc. There are just two more things I learned about the play. It's improvisational and it's in German. I'll get back to you with a review in February.

    Hi Jule,
    cool that you visited the space station. the play is not improvisational, its completly scripted text and choreographed. We rehearsing it since september. Its partner event of the transmediale media art festival. Last year I played with my improv group called "Improbanden" 3 shows for the c-base transmediale partner event and are now in the play. May be that causes misunderstandings in the c-base crew.

    @macro: You guys were great! I loved especially the hysterically hitleresque Popovich and even more: Queen Kong! Looking forward to your upcoming projects!
    @Cory: Thanks for the info!
