Das Helmi

The excess population of human beings is taken on shocking dimensions – is it time to rethink things? Inspired by Donna Haraway, Unruhig bleiben/Staying with the Trouble invites the audience to experience a collective, speculative fabulation about five generations of a symbiogenetic connection between humanity and monarch butterflies. Five life stories between 2025 and 2425 make up this attempt to redesign the art of living together on a damaged planet.
