Art Fiction: The starting point of this futuristic performance is the original score of the musical extravaganza The Black Crook of 1866 - the first Broadway hit to be staged as a major production. The Austrian-based international collective of performers, choreographers and dancers uses strategies and the potential of a feel good genre like the musical. By the dramaturgical means of leaping forward in time to the year 2110, the group aims at opening imaginary-physical spaces, which could maybe exist in the musical of the future. Along with emotionally charged ballads, sampling earwigs and electronic bossa nova, they pose questions to the aesthetics of the future:
What fields are there still to be conquered? Which »holy cow« needs to be slaughtered? What can »pre-enactment « mean on stage? How responsible are we for the fulfillment of our own prophecies?
