DISAPPEARING FUTURE

 

This devised performance is an investigation of three dystopias. Initial theme – Perfect Bodies and Strange Death – evolved into studies of human fear of death and enhancement of a human body as a result of the technological progress. Three dystopian visions can be considered as separate and unrelated stories. Or the audience can search for their connections. The performance combines object theatre, puppet theatre and visual theatre. It is a funny, poetic and emblematic examination of the future that is already here. PERFECT BODIES Is it possible that human efforts to enhance their body and prolong their lifetime with a help of technological advancements will lead to the opposite – a complete misunderstanding of the functions of various parts of the body and the body as a whole? As a result of a long process of experimentation with a variety of objects and materials, the creative team offers a dream-like incomprehensible vision. Is there another way to look into the future?

 

 

FUTURE ARCHAEOLOGISTS Let’s imagine the future archaeologists who fall into an abandoned area where there is no one to ask for advice. High technologies have been destroyed or confiscated, and they find items that have once been useful to humans. When touched the objects come to life. What can they tell about the former civilization? Or about us – the future archaeologists? STRANGE DEATH There are two parallel stories that may be perceived as a dream of each other. A secluded closed community that has escaped a social uproar is training itself for upcoming catastrophes. However, considering their dependency on meat, this strategy does not seem to be sustainable. In another reality, an ancient civilization is trying to recall rituals that made them live.
