Mobile Actors, 3G in the making

This opera in one act, for several actors was inspired by two things: the team's participation in the 3GSMWorld Conference in Cannes, February 2001, and Bruno Latour's idea of the controversies involved in technologies-in-the-making. We have tried to listen to a lot of voices around the 3rd generation of mobile communications and dramatize the scene from a designer's point of view.
