08 May 2019 / Nows

Theatre play by Donna Haraway

Zitadelle, Bastion Kronprinz

Premiere 8 May, 7pm

How can we reshape living together on a damaged planet? From the early 21st century, the communities of “compostists” committed themselves to radically reducing the world’s human population and developing countless practices of cross-species environmental justice. STAYING WITH THE TROUBLE follows five generations of a symbiosis between the human child Camille and monarch butterflies between the year 2025 and 2425. Much unrest, much kinship, to carry on.
