Humanotop 2.0

A participatory audio walk

Based on the Humanotop project, which was created in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and Münster University of Applied Sciences, the Brachland ensemble developed a participatory audio walk that enables viewers to rethink the future of their city based on scientific data.

About the project

A little mind game: It's 5 past twelve. Despite all the social and ecological challenges, mankind has managed to turn the tide and get the system back on track. How could they have done it? Scientists from the future are racking their brains over this question in a laboratory. But to find the answers, they need the active support of other experts: the participating audience.

Together with the performers, the audience creates an image of the future in scenic experiments and dialogs, interactive game situations and an audio walk that allows them to look at their city in a new way. Who were we, who are we, who will we be?
