NEUE DRINGLICHKEIT »Zurück in die Zukunft (Back to the Future)«If sci-fi writers of the 1970s were to see what's happening today in 2017, they would be doubly disappointed. Neither aesthetically nor socially can the present compete with the former future: there are no flying cars, no androids, nor cities on Mars and diseases, inequalities as well as armed conflicts are still rampant. Technological and societal progress has taken the wrong turn. We need to go «Back to the Future» and travel in time. Starting from past visions of the future and passing through failed utopias and crushed dreams, we will slowly make our way to the year 2070 where we hope to celebrate the manifold beauty of a new world together.The one-hour performance will take place on thursday at18:00 Uhr & 20:30 Uhr. In co-production with Gessnerallee Zürich, Shedhalle Zürich, Produktionsplattform TECHNE / Theater Rampe and Künstlerhaus Stuttgart.Supported by Stadt Zürich Kultur, Kanton Zürich Fachstelle Kultur, Pro Helvetia, Ernst Göhner Stiftung, Georges and Jenny Bloch StiftungMore info via:https://17.nodeforum.org/events/zuruck-in-die-zukunft/https://zurueckindiezukunft.org/NODE17 will continue with a daily program of performances, labs, talks and more until Sunday 02 July 2017.
