We are in the distant future. A turning point in the history of mankind has been reached. A devastating force is engaged in utterly destroying all life on earth. With the aid of a child, a few people have nonetheless succeeded in reaching a place of safety. But life in this safe room is far from easy. The survivors, being human, are constantly at odds with one another. On top of all this is the fact that the chosen ones cannot escape life. Immortality prevails, and suicide doesn’t offer any way out.

Saturday 27 May 2017 at 17:30 — lecture by Wim Vandekeybus on principles of his works. Fee CZK 200 / free with a ticket to "Mockumentary of a Contemporary Savior" peformance. Please reserve your spot at ticket@archatheatre.cz.


Other reprises  

The ambiguous relationship with the child in the outside world, internal conflicts, cultural differences and the urges and instincts characteristic of humanity make it a time of uninterrupted commotion. The desire to surrender to the all-destroying forces of the outside world is always lurking. Is mankind actually worth saving?

In the theatre and dance performance Mockumentary of a Contemporary Saviour, Wim Vandekeybus, through the medium of seven characters, presents an incisive portrait of a messiah as an imaginary figure. Utopia and dystopia at a single glance. Nothing is what it seems in this futuristic reality.

"I consider the piece to be science fiction, but of a very retro kind. The period is left completely vague, so it is only indirectly about today. I started reading sci-fi books for the very first time for this piece. Ursula K. Le Guin and people like that: really fantastic. The genre is very theatrical because it can simply omit things that are part of our everyday reality in order to focus on something very specific. Theatre and dance share that quality. You make your own codes. But this is not sci-fi with impressive visual effects. I am particularly interested in the atmosphere of seventies sci-fi films, like George Lucas's THX 1138 by or Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris." — Wim Vandekeybus.
