Figure 7: Workforce Y – April ’16
My definition of Generation Y are those born between the early 1980s to around 2000, also known as Millennials. In 2016, roughly aged 20 to 35. For me this is a very interesting group when it comes to the future impact on economic and political issues. Workforce Y are tech- savvy, living in a time of extraordinary technological change, while also spending their formative years in political upheaval due to economic recession.
Workforce Y is built on the previous two showings, Bubble Magic and My Big Little Data Life. The audio tracks utilised in the performance are in a narrative form to construct a dialogue between Generation Y and capitalist structures.
Here is the performance script: Workforce Y – Final Version v05
As can be seen in the script there is a dialogue between the live performers and the “Advisor” voiceover. Here is the related cue sheet (Workforce Y Cue Sheet) and link to audio cues (Workforce Y Sound Cues) used in the performance.
