The Zero Protocols

The «The Zero Pro­to­cols» is an ongo­ing dance– and thea­ter­per­for­mance pro­ject that is pre­pa­red for dif­fe­rent venues and off-spaces. It’s the tour ver­si­on of our pro­ject 0 (2016) in which we tran­scri­be our search for an alter­na­ti­ve future and con­front the collec­ti­ve void of visio­na­ry imagination.

The world alrea­dy ended and nobo­dy reco­gni­zed it. Until now. You only rea­li­ze a dream when you wake up from it. And now we are para­ly­zed. We left a world shat­te­red into pie­ces. The ide­as that has dri­ves us tur­ned out to be an illu­si­on. And yet we need ide­as for a new world that are making the chan­ge. We know time is ticking. Doomclock says 11:59. There’s a new world to come any­way, but the ques­ti­on is: Is that world with or without us.

The audi­ence enters this in-bet­ween-world, in which not ever­ything seems lost but no one knows what might replace this world eit­her. Ever­yo­ne is thrown back on hims­elf and all actions are cha­rac­te­ri­zed by eit­her idea­lism, fata­lism or lethar­gy. We are loo­king for momen­tum, to break out of this pre­di­ca­ment. But none of us knows how long we are about to last.
