FUTUR GERMANIA searches for new and old myths, places of remembrance, rituals and symbols. Which of them could be fixed points for the construction of identities and self-images of a coming community? There is no speculation about their concrete form and composition. Rather, the question arrises on which values a society could be based. Which car stereotypes should it propagate? What could it be proud of? What should it be ashamed of? Whose inheritance should it accept or reject? The new production by Munich theater maker Oliver Zahn negotiates no more and no less than the future of a society that is, for example, called Germany and which may lie in disintegration or decay. An open archive serves as the basis. Its content is a corpus of objects, songs, practices, symbols, figures. For every performance, there is a different performer on stage. This person brings his or her own new elements into the evening – and thus becomes co-author of the archive.
