Please note this event has now finished.

2062 is an experimental theatrical show about a dystopian world, where the “present” is deemed as the authentic protagonist. Borders, walls, new migrations, current affairs, and economic changes are the key ingredients to this society.

The conceptual interdisciplinary show is developed through a combination of formats such multimedia, comic, illustration and animation techniques. It uses a blend of shadow play and theatre props to create a cinematic live performance.

The world will never be the same again … Borders will turn red again or disappear completely. They will become less accessible. New walls will be built and old ideals will be buried. Wars will be different, but killings will be continued at an ideological gunpoint.

Capitalism will spread, covering the terrestrial world with its coat. Governments will lose their power cells to big corporations.

An agonised Europe loses its hegemony. Citizens search for their identities in shopping carts. The 21st century has arrived and changed us forever. But we hardly realise it. Somehow everything continues to be the same…
