Transition and Apocalypse

Part of the festival “The Present Is Not Enough – Performing Queer Histories and Futures”


Performance: approx. 60 min. / Installation: 17:00–21:00

“Transition and Apocalypse” is a new multi-disciplinary piece inspired by Octavia Butler’s “Parable” series. The work consists of an installation and a series of public activations with a focus on the recurrence of the end of the world in contemporary narratives, as well as on the ethical dilemmas such relations engenders. The performance operates within a non-linear time, so the apocalypse is read not solely as an ending point but as a transitional path towards another world experiences.        

The installation runs from 21.–23.6. and from 27.–30.6., 17:00–21:00 / Admission free
