With the theme Heal Royale, The Overkill Festival examines the way in which technology and digital worlds provide space for online expression and a healthy life. In a time of global crises, uncertainty and a constant flow of information, can we find space for individual well-being? Can virtual experiences connect with our senses? And what significance does this have for the way we experience digital worlds? In this symposium we are inspired by the pleasure of food and the many sensations that food can offer. We use eating rituals to discover new ways to deal with our hybrid reality.
