„It is a cold, sober fact, that the world is becoming a better place. It is easy to be cynical and to assend, nothing is getting better. Fortunately empiric research proves them wrong. The world is much more moldable than you think: And the world ism waiting for you, hammering it into the right form.“
Max Roser, Universität Oxford

everything will be fine!

A daring thesis in view of the current world situation? The Brachland- Ensemble will substantiate it with facts and stories. In a world-wide research we will look for visionaries and role models. In the context of a documentary and poetic created production we will bring them on stage – live via Skype.
What is taken for granted today, was a far utopia for our grandparents. Most europeans, who are in their retirement age today, belong to the first generation that experienced peace, liberty and prosperity as a permanent condition. Nevertheless we apparently remain in love with the Apocalypse. On the front pages of the past decades the clock always showed 5 to 12. Bad news are good news. Studies indicate that it came to an increasing „collusion of the journalistic event horizon“
in the world of news. “. Social media contribute to the emergence of downright „alarm-tsunamis“. Soon
afterwards the wave of outrage breaks, people start to forget. What remains is a feeling of uncertainty and that somehow everything becomes even worse. But what if the panorama window to the world that we can see through, is just a keyhole to a world which is much better as we might know?

[…] Poetic, shrill, humorous, radically un-radical – with their playful-rapid documentary style they transform the stage into a cabinet of marvelling, into a wondrous zoetrope, that is powered by empathy and whose pictures show a contagious curiosity and openness. Predicate valuable!
