Everything is connected to everything. Climate change and species extinction are a consequence of our way of life. Limiting ourselves is one solution. But above all, it is about a new relationship to what we like to call ‘resources’: The earth, the plants, the animals, the cultures. GLOBAL AMAZONIA moves artistically to the Amazon region and explores on the outer skin of the Kleist Forum forms of vertical theatre, video projection and live music. In a scenario of impending extinction, how can we find new partnerships with beings that are also becoming extinct – and thus perhaps postpone the extinction?
The piece is produced by Grotest Maru. Premiere september 16th at Kleist Forum Frankfurt Oder
