Mateja Meded and Thomas Köck open in the world flames like a disco ball the scenario of a planet Earth that aliens take possession of after humans have died out due to drought and water pollution.
Even the Styx, the river of the dead, and its tributaries Kokytos and Lethe have dried up. The souls of the deceased can no longer cross over into the realm of the dead and accumulate in the form of spirits hoping for a cleansing flood.
In the 21st century, we are in the era of global warming and the Anthropocene, which we cannot leave anytime soon. The latter is referred to by the traffic jam of the dead, who cannot become history and the past.
Only when something like love for the planet arises, according to the text, can the tide perhaps still turn.
The play was created as part of RambaZamba's collaboration with the Theater of the Anthropocene and AnthropoScenes, a project of the Berlin University Alliance centered around the future of water in Berlin and Brandenburg.
