HUMANITY REENACTED

It critically questions a global unfolding of uprooted identification with tradition and ritual and how this shapes today’s people and the individual.
This recently written and highly topical piece by Existence Theatre is a philosophical examination about culture and humanity. It depicts how the phenomenon of war uses fear evoking behaviours to feed destructive forces that overpower and manipulate people and whole nations.
HUMANITY REENACTED dives into a performative re-experiencing of humanity’s mistakes. The work expresses how collective suffering has severe consequences on the human psyche and life as such.

Entire cities have been whiped out. This is no longer acceptable. Brainwashing… the end of the world… no one can escape… no one can think for themselves… a ghetto of annihilation detroys humanity. This is civilisation of a new world order!…

The Narrative Trust the breathtaking honesty of the protagonists, a family of six. They have been quaratined by the state and confined to their house. One of them discovers an old book in the library called ‘Eamon Humanity Reenacted’. Bored to death under their circumstances, they agree to create a play from that story. The book’s prologue warns of repeating the past, but all family members ignore it. Their house turns into a kingdom called after its king Eamon, the story gets real and the family finds themselves as reawakened archetypes in a world full of love, passion, grief, power and surrender.
