World premiere

What impact does our current way of life have on future generations? Together, the journalist Julia Lauter from Berlin, the Théâtre du Point du Jour and the Citizen.KANE.Kollektiv consider the development of three industries that are the focus of criticism due to the climate crisis. Will the phasing out of coal and nuclear power also mean the phasing out of gasoline and diesel? How will social discussions be conducted in our country and in neighboring France? Investigative research focuses on the coal and nuclear power plants around Lyon and Leipzig as well as the automotive industry in Stuttgart. On stage there are interviews with workers, scientists, activists and the greatest hero in human cultural history: Prometheus. Like Prometheus, the employees of these companies were first celebrated as heroes who brought heat, electricity and mobility to the people.

Today they are seen as environmental destroyers, whose work is at the center of the actions of environmental activists and who are denounced. From hero to zero. The evening considers the Promethean ambivalence of scientific progress and the need to curb our limitless desires for consumption in order to curb climate change.

The world premiere of the international co-production at euro-scene Leipzig will be followed by a tour with further performances at Schauspiel Stuttgart (November 12) and Théâtre du Point du Jour in Lyon (November 21-23).

After the performance on November 5th, there will be an audience discussion with journalist Julia Lauter and the artists.
