Simple as ABC #2: Keep Calm & Validate is a documentary musical theatre performance about the digitization of migration management and the outsourcing of our unease about social sorting. The libretto for this ‘musical’ contains many literally transcribed conversations with border and data managers in the control rooms and at the liquid fringes of Project Europe.
