at the BRINK festival 2021
will the real human being please stand up?
Theatre of the Sea is calling all citizens of hope. Let’s build an ark to preserve those species of human encounter we’ll need for a future which promises to be stranger than fiction. There is no time left to spectate, this is a rehearsal for real life!
the rehearsal is an experimental artwork in the service of societal transformation. It continues the tradition of Joseph Beuys' social sculpture by actively engaging audiences in the exploration of a more humane future.
