Director and composer Heiner Goebbels moves away from traditional drama into a world where machines, fire and electricity, noises and melodies tell stories on a par with a person - they become tools for creating polyphony.

April 18, 17:00
Fading Apocalypse

The stream will take place on the Electrotheatre's VKontakte page
Faading Apocalypse is an installation created by director Boris Yukhananov in collaboration with  artist Yelena Koptyaeva as a reflection of the identities of three outstanding contemporary artists, directors Heiner Goebbels, Theodoros Terzopoulos and Romeo Castellucci. Each enters into dialogue with Boris Yukhananov as they apply water with a brush to a small stone board. The unpredictability of “fading” water gives rise to various thoughts associated with their work on various performances. This reflects the unpredictable nature of creativity.
