The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a groundbreaking transatlantic theater project focused on the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the US and Europe have commissioned five-minute plays exploring the central question, “What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?”

The results will be presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. As a contributor to this project, the UVA Department of Drama will present performances of selected works commissioned by the Project and five works written by UVA students.

Works commissioned by the P3M5 Project include Quality, Reliability by Csaba Székely (Hungary), Project Deburkanisation by Rachida Lamrabet (Belgium), @HotMigrants by Paco Bezerra (Spain), What is Essential is Invisible to the Eye... by Simona Hamer (Slovenija), 9022131-Pink by Kenneth Lin (USA), Surveillance State by Marioan Hosseini (Sweden), and Inner Sanctum by Rebecca Gilman (USA).

Works by UVA students include Rec by Christine McLennan, Shared Space and Do Not Distrub by Ben Feldman, Remebrance by Mimi Robinson, and Will Be Live by Micah Watson.

P3M5 is presented with support from the Mead Endowment.
