What does Privacy mean in the Digital Age? The VORTEX is proud to join an international project investigating the value, nature, and evolution of privacy. This series of newly commissioned 5-minute plays from writers around the world is presented in collaboration with the Goethe-Institute Washington and theatres across the US and Europe. The collection of plays creates an artistic and cultural dialogue around our divergent understandings of privacy. VORTEX Connects continues these conversations each night with post-performance discussions with leading voices in digital rights, technology, humanities, and the future of privacy.

Playwrights include: Rebecca Gilman (Seattle), David Greig (UK), Kenneth Lin (Baltimore), Alex Lorette (Belgium), Mihaela Michailov (Romania), Phillip Kan Gotanda (San Francisco), J Setz (Austria), Paco Bezerra (Spain), Felicia Zeller (Germany), Rachida Lamrade (Belgium), Sarah Gubbins (Atlanta), and Tereza Volánková (Czech Republic).

Curated by VORTEX Associate Artistic Director, Dr. Heather Barfield.  Directed by Susan Bennett, Teresa Cruz, Trey Deason, Anna Eisley, Jamie Goodman, Shannon Grounds, Annie Kim Hedrick, Blake Robbins, and Alejandra Navarro.

P3M5 is funded in part by the Goethe-Institute Washington, VORTEX Repertory Company, by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
