The novel "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley, published in 1932, is about a society in the future in which stability, peace and freedom are guaranteed by a totalitarian dictatorship. People are no longer born, they are bred into social castes. Common to all castes is conditioning for permanent gratification through consumption, sex, and a drug called soma, which deprives members of society of the need to think critically and question the world order.

The central motifs from Huxley's dystopia become the theme of RAVE NEW WORLD.

The question of what control the state has over the human body determines the plot. Like a mad rush between baroque decadence and techno-rave, the dance theater tells of themes such as consumption, power and powerlessness, as well as the all-encompassing question of the freedom of an individual in the structure of a society of the present and the future.
