From 1st of February till 24th of April – 2020 – After Yuval Noah Harari’s texts

The project 2020 aims to present the challenges of the immediate future in a performative way. The starting point of our exploration is the year 2020. In theatre, for example, in the work of director Ariane Mnouchkine, one is familiar with productions that attempted to reconstruct significant years, such as 1789, 1848, 1914, or 1968. In fiction, we are familiar with the works that predicted the future, such as Orwell’s novel 1984. Kubrick’s brilliant film 2001: A Space Odyssey enquired whether we, as a human species, are capable of coping with a wonderful message of hope with the overtones of humanism.

The production 2020, inspired by the works of Yuval Harari, will address the destiny and evolution of man. Analogies with Kubrick’s Odyssey 2001 are emerging in a philosophical and allegorical sense. Similar to the film, inspired by a short story The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clark, Harari’s thoughts will become a starting point for dialogues, monologues, dance and music acts in the genre of a science cabaret. Our ambition is to create a smart, amusing and educational work dealing with the evolution, the universe and our place in it; existentialism and artificial intelligence.
