What do you say, do or make when the end is nigh?
Five figures stand in an empty theatre space, accompanied only by the time they have left. Together, they form a portrait of humanity in the insane twentieth century, awaiting the inevitable catastrophe. Despite the shock, they continue to talk, perform, and play music. Beyond all efforts and hope – but with a robust sense of nonsense – they live in a state where a great many new possibilities emerge. This piece is performed by actors Johan Leysen, José Kuijpers, Jan Steen, Jeroen Van der Ven, accompanied by pianist Marino Formenti.
