An interactive future area

In cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and Münster University of Applied Sciences, the Brachland ensemble is asserting an interactive future area which, based on scientific data, enables viewers to rethink the future of their city.


About the project

A little mind game: It's 5 past twelve. Despite all the social and ecological challenges, mankind has managed to turn the tide and get the system back on track. How could they have done it? Scientists from the future are racking their brains over this question in a laboratory. But to find the answers, they need the active support of other experts.

In the science fiction-like setting of HUMANOTOP, the audience and the performers work together to create a picture of the future through scenic experiments and dialogues, interactive game situations and an audio walk that allows them to take a new look at their city. Who were we, who are we, who will we be?
