Inspired by the works of Yuval Harari, the 2020 performance focuses on human evolution and fate. Harari’s thoughts are used to build up dialogues, monologues, dance and music scenes that will take the form of a scientific vaudeville. Our aim was to create a clever, fun, and educational work addressing evolution, space, our place in the universe, existentialism, and artificial intelligence.
In seeking to transpose Harari’s world into a stage performance, theatre director Ivica Buljan has likewise looked for absoluteness, a definite answer. According to Buljan, “this performance poses the question of what is good life. This key question is structured to go beyond the philosophical and religious thought and instead focus primarily on human existence. We ask ourselves where we stand with two basic values: kindness and respect of others.”
