Starting from a question regarding the progress of humanity, ”Against progress/ Gegen den Fortschritt” debates subjects which puzzled all the generations, in a staging concept which shows the essence of the everyday absurd through means of expression which are authentic, minimalist and displaying strong surrealistic accents. This production of the German department of the National Theatre in Sibiu suggests an absurd universe, populated by unusual characters, depicting a possible macabre future for humankind. The seven stages force us to imagine how the world would look like in 10 years, if humanity will continue on its present course of progress: a tough, alienated world, lacking any moral standard, any emotion.
Performance not recommended under the age of 12.
Performance presented in German, with translation into English and Romanian.

Co-production: THEATER ecce Salzburg, Austria
