The Arctic icecaps are melting, our oceans are getting warmer, forests are burning. Something must be done, that much is clear. But how can we hope for change when we keep repeating the same mistakes? Through the perspectives of class, patriarchy and colonialism, the new text of Chris Bush explores the „hyperobject” of climate change. It does not have a linear narrative, but fragments of a hundred possible linear narratives. In a collage-like, shattered form, the spectators are invited to search for causes and effects and construct their own narratives.

At once terrifying and hopeful in the face of apocalyptic times, the show is a heart-breaking reflection on time, memory and the choices that determine our destiny.
