The Maya project will deliver an interactive live performance mixing dance, projections and advanced techniques of AI (Artificial Intelligence), in which audiences will be subjected to a series of claims: some blatantly true, some blatantly false, and still others that could be both true and false, depending on the context.
The objective of the project is to raise public awareness of the concepts of disinformation and misinformation, through direct involvement, through the interaction in the decision on topical statements that are proposed to the public itself. The audience is therefore not only a spectator, but an integral part of the artistic performance.
The Maya project takes its name from Shopenhauer’s thinking: the “real” world hides itself from the eyes of man. The real world is right behind a veil. This veil is precisely the “veil of Maya”. Schopenhauer stated that life is a dream. The real hides under the veil of Maya and this veil must be torn off.
