GHOSTS

AN HOMAGE TO THE DISAPPEARING AND THE DISAPPEARED

 
 

It seems to be easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. And yet: What if reality had the potential to look different than the current situation might lead us to fear? Suppose all the lost opportunities that would have given us a way out were somewhere to be found and had an actual shape?

In this play, we give up the belief that there are no ghosts. We call them onto the stage and let them appear, because we believe they have something to tell us. We create this play together with the ghosts, knowing it would not exist without them. That’s what “Ghosts” is all about: the salvation of our lost future.
