Project summary

The 2084 Project aims to work on a theatre performance called 2084 – the Arrival of the Golden Age. The production is a nonverbal, movement-based performance integrating clowning, physical, and visual theatre elements directed by Matyas Marofka. The show tells a fictional, Utopian and symbolic story of humanity and strives to react to the current challenges of climate change,. demonstrating how global warming and related threats affect our present and future. Working on the structure and artistic expression of the performance, the artist will visit each partner festival and work on the production with local performers to explore the effect of climate crises in a local context ofa proposed artistic framework ,while developing the structure of the theatre performance, resulting in a work-in-progress presentation during the festivals.
