About their UN Biennale performance // “In transition. Back from the future”
In three acts – a total of three hours of performance by Theater ANU – eight actors play a game where they imagine what will happen after the catastrophe for which we humans are responsible. They survive the Great Flood on an ark made of plastic and decide to form and live in a new society, one that tries to find a female perspective in everything, “because the post-apocalyptic age will be female.” They embody future values and cultures of encounter, look into the past, search for transformation. In its “tableaux vivants” – sometimes in slow motion, sometimes full of energy – Theater ANU reconquers and revives urban spaces that have become inhospitable.
