A black hole is point zero – a point of total destruction on the one hand, and a spring of life, a source of creation on the other hand. It is the impossible condition of the possibility of both the nothingness of anti-matter and the fullness of the universe.
Using a black hole as a metaphor, the project discloses the acute reality of the collision of the Western tradition of humanism that has become extremely violent and aggressive and whose collapse into itself we can currently observe in the re-structuring of the positions of power, the status of truth and of ethical values.
The project has received the German Werkauftrag des Theatertreffen Stückemarkts 2016 award, funded by the Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung (bpb).
The performance will be held in English and Slovenian, with surtitles. Ticket info is available here.
