About the event
Aliens have taken possession of planet Earth. Drought and water pollution have wiped out the human race. Even the Styx, the river of the dead, and its tributaries Kokytos and Lethe have dried up. The souls of the deceased can no longer cross over into the realm of the dead and begin to accumulate on the river bed—hoping for a flood.
From the minds of playwrights Mateja Meded and Thomas Köck, the world flames like a discokugel is inspired by the era of the Anthropocene, our era of climatic variability and extremes which we cannot leave anytime soon. It takes audiences on a mythical journey to ask whether a refound love for the planet can help the tides turn to bring the water and the spirits back.
Tickets can be purchased on the RambaZamba webpage.
The play was created as part of RambaZamba's collaboration with the Theater of the Anthropocene and AnthropoScenes and is funded within the framework of the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state government by the Berlin University Alliance.
