Meet the Millenials, Asia is a lecture performance. A theatrical journey of discovery. We follow creator Lucas De Man while meeting Asia’s upcoming generation of creatives. A generation finding their place in this complex world. In order to deal with the sometimes terrifying global dynamics of this era, Europe and Asia need each other more than ever.

In the performance, Lucas takes us with him on his journey to 6 six Asian megacities: Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Taipei. He tells the story of a generation that is looking for ways to combine a modern view on love, friendship and sex with more traditional views on family and social cohesion. He inspires with examples of our Asian peers’ hands on mentality while dealing with issues as overpopulation, climate change, loneliness and elderly care. And he gives insights in issues that will keep on coming closer in the nearby future.

Meet the Millenials connects stories of daily life, work, education, artificial intelligence, emancipatory movements and individual happiness in the shared space of megacities. The performance is a combination of storytelling, anime, lecture and travel documentary and it shows us the complex tasks of bringing this world into the next phase. It’s is a journey of discovery: an exploration of an Asian generation finding their voice.

With Meet the Millenials, Asia it is finally time to talk inspiration, follow imagination and be overwhelmed with lightning fast forward thinking to change.
