Zurück in die Zukunft (Back to the Future)

Installation / Theatre / Celebration

by Kollektiv Neue Dringlichkeit



If sci-fi writers of the 1970s were to see what’s happening today in 2017, they would be doubly disappointed. Neither aesthetically nor socially can the present compete with the former future: there are no flying cars, no androids, nor cities on Mars and diseases, inequalities as well as armed conflicts are still rampant. Technological and societal progress has taken the wrong turn. We need to go «Back to the Future» and travel in time. Starting from past visions of the future and passing through failed utopias and crushed dreams, we will slowly make our way to the year 2070 where we hope to celebrate the manifold beauty of a new world together.

By Theresa Behling, Yannick Geske, Benny Hauser, Paulina Kind, Dagmar Kestner, Miriam Walther Kohn, Christopher Kriese, Maja Leo, Fabian Ristau, Nele Solf, Lisa Schröter, Michel Weber, Tali Furrer, Patrizia Fedier and many other utopists.

In co-production with Gessnerallee Zürich, Shedhalle Zürich, Produktionsplattform TECHNE/Theater Rampe and Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.

Supported by Stadt Zürich Kultur, Kanton Zürich Fachstelle Kultur, Pro Helvetia, Ernst Göhner Stiftung.
