A cyber thriller about power and influence. This is a battle of global giants that connects mythological stories with the contemporary economic life. The piece combines a radio play with a 360-degree video. It intertwines the complex story of Medea and the battle for supremacy of today’s global corporations. The stories have a symbolic intensity in the sky full of stars. They stay there even when people and gods, corporations and buildings have been long gone. In centuries and millennia, they tell of gory encounters, heroic quests, avarice and jealousy. And it seems nothing can stop the inhabitants of the Earth under them from repeating the old battles time and again: respectively with new faces and sizes, but with the very same motives even to date.
