Thom Truong

Invest in me! – Die Ästhetik des Glaubens die Welt verändern zu können

Österreichische Erstaufführungbrutproduktion

It’s been ages since a movement claimed that it wanted to change the world and actually could do so. Now there is one again – they call themselves Social Entrepreneurs and do not want to change the world in a collective political sense, but in a private entrepreneurial one. The Social Entrepreneurs don’t want to talk, they want to act! They are organised in a global network and work in so-called hubs, “third spaces” in which the border between work and leisure time blurs.
Thom Truong brings the Social Entrepreneurs together with representatives of various artistic disciplines, preparing them for their persuasive appearance. In Invest in me! the Social Entrepreneurs take to the stage in order to convince both the audience as well as real investors about their visions. Both of them should invest time and money in them.
