The $2$-representation theory of $2$-categories is a categorical analogue of the representation theory of algebras. In my talk, I will recall its origins, its purposes, its basic features and explain some important examples. This talk is based on joint work with Mazorchuk, Miemietz, Tubbenhauer and Zhang.
