We live, here and now, in a will-be-won’t-be reality. In a claimed world full of resources, optimization and equal opportunities. In a world full of feasibility, happy endings and devil-may-care, in which we human bodies can do whatever we want. We believe, here and now, that we can just pull out, retreat into ourselves when the water is up to our necks. Be water my friend.
The interactive radio play »Beton. Wüste. Zukunft.« invites us to trace our own cognitive dissonance between real climate crisis and fatalistic displacement. The Floating, the disused rain catchment basin of Tempelhof Airport, offers a spectacular scenario for this: between concrete and wasteland, between mobility infrastructure and art venue, the audience can put their knowledge of the climate crisis, their feelings about it and their own actions in relation to each other. With dripping sounds, diving meditation and thought experiments, big questions are asked and small steps towards utopia are dared.
Alisa Tretau‘s multidisciplinary works revolve around shameful facets of current political issues. The 360° short film »Wüste Zukunft« already revolved around climate justice. Previously she published the anthology ‘Nicht nur Mütter waren schwanger’ (edition assemblage).
N O T E: Because it is an auditory-based work, »Beton. Wüste. Zukunft.« is unfortunately not currently suitable for people with hearing disabilities.
