Which path should I choose? Where is my life going? What does the future have in store for me? The urgent need to explore something specific about the future has been pursuing humankind throughout their history. Already in antiquity oracles were consulted, entrails of sacrificial animals interpreted, and constellations of celestial bodies observed. Practices such as reading hands or cartomancy exist up to this day. Contemporary philosophy produces new perspectives on the future, rooted in the critique of the existing system. The discipline of futurology uses scientific methods to make statements about the future, and even governments seek futurologists’ advice: Knowledge about the future guarantees power. Set in an estranged desert landscape and accompanied by the compositions of Robert Lippok, Constanza Macras, together with ten virtuosi performers and three musicians, explores scenarios in which ascriptions of the future from different eras, utopias, and dystopias collide. What happens to visions of the future that become the present or even the past? And what do they reveal about us and our society?   CREDITS Concept, text and choreography: Constanza Macras Dramaturgy: Carmen Mehnert Text: René Pollesch By and with: Alexandra Bódi, Emil Bordás, Benny Claessens, Fernanda Farah, Rob Fordeyn, Johanna Lemke, Sonya Levin, Thulani Lord Mgidi, Daisy Phillips, Miki Shoji Live Music by and with: Tatiana Heuman, Kristina Lösche-Löwensen, Katrin Schüler-Springorum Composition: Robert Lippok Stage design: Alissa Kolbusch Costumes: Eleonore Carriere Light design: Hans-Hermann Schulze Sound design: Tobias Gringel Mask and Make up: Spyridon Prosoparis Assistant Director: Michael Heilmann Dramaturgy assistant: Lili Hering Costume assistant: Djuna Reiner Stage assistant: Laurent Pellissier Production Management: Jimena Soria Production Office: Léo Pflimlin Administration/Management DorkyPark: Xiao Yu Distribution: Plan B – Creative Agency for Performing Arts Foto: Thomas Aurin    A co-production by Constanza Macras | DorkyPark and Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.
