About the Show

BNN is the original adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, translocated to a world, very similar to ours, in which mankind, for the sake of fairness and safety, lives isolated in an unreal bubble—“the New Normal”—subordinated to its own inventions: science, technology and social organisation.

 

Introduction:

Brave New Normal is a parable about the dehumanisation of human beings. In the dystopia described in this story, mankind lives isolated and subordinated to its own inventions: science, technology and social organisation. These creations have ceased to serve society; they have become its masters. Nearly a century has passed since Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World was published. In that time, our world has taken so many steps in the wrong direction that, if Huxley were writing it today, he would likely date this story not 600 years in the future, as he originally did, but in a close, close one—one in which people, for the sake of fairness and safety, lived in an unreal bubble, that they could have named “the New Normal”.  The price of liberty, and even of common humanity, is eternal vigilance.

Brave New Normal—A Virtual Parable is one of the highlights of the Global Culture International Festival, an artistic and academic encounter that celebrates our shared humanity through the arts. It includes a number of online and physical events in the UK, China and Malaysia, from the 3rd to the 6th of May 2022. For more details on the Festival visit:
