It's going to end badly
There is so much to worry about: melting polar ice, dance contests, being forced to change school, tiger poaching. The world is full of potential catastrophes that cannot all be avoided. Some of them will happen – and they will happen during THE APOCALYPSE.
Backa Theatre is collaborating for the first time with Poste Restante, a groundbreaking company that creates interactive performance works in which the boundary between stage and auditorium has been lifted.
In Apokalypsen (The Apocalypse), the cast starts from their own 11-year-old fear of "the catastrophe". Together with the audience, we find strategies for making the anxiety more bearable. Because the worst has already happened and now it's just a question of getting through it.
