“Life must be lived forwards, but it can only be understood backwards.” (Kierkegaard)

Like its title, this performance is a palindrome that you will be able to see both forwards and backwards. Because some people believe humanity is moving forward, while others believe the opposite. Some say the world is coming to an end, and others call them doomsayers. No matter who is right, in our quest for progress, we have dramatically changed the world we live in. Are our actions irreversible? Or can we undo them?

This performance presents a visual metaphor for this crucial moment in our future history, tracing the process of human moving towards their downfall — or their salvation. Are we not drawn onward to new erA is “an inventive, meticulously choreographed artistic commentary on humanity’s collective destruction of the Earth and every person’s responsibility to commit fully to its rehabilitation.” (The Skinny) An Edinburgh Fringe First Award winner, this powerful piece of theater is a “technically dazzling, emotionally devastating show.” (Time Out)

Join us after the Friday, January 20 performance for a Post-Performance Artist Q&A to get a glimpse into the lives and minds of the artists who bring their creativity to the stage.

Produced by Ontroerend Goed, Spectra, Kunstcentrum Vooruit, Theatre Royal Plymouth, and Richard Jordan Productions
