Apocalypse in Bavaria!

Enter a multimedia theatrical obstacle course! Based on Thomas von Steinaecker’s science fiction novel, which was nominated for the German Book Prize, Gernot Grünewald develops an immersive spatial experience poised between drama, installation and video art in which the audience can freely move around.

After the end of the world, young Heinz is one of the last people still to be living on an alpine pasture in the region of Berchtesgadener. Ever since a major disaster, it is only possible to survive in a few areas of Germany which are covered by huge protective shields. Heinz is trying to collect as much of the lost culture as possible and write a kind of history of the last people. When one of the shields explodes, he and a small group of survivors suddenly become refugees. They embark on an apocalyptic road trip through a devastated Bavaria.

Gernot Grünewald’s work, which is poised between video and installation art, has an extraordinary visual power. In “The Defence of Paradise”, he allows us to experience a world after the catastrophe and, with his ensemble, creates a strikingly direct encounter between the audience and the actors.
