Colonization – new origin

VOSTO5 / Archa Theatre / 4+4 days in motion

Who are we? Where are we going? Who will come for us?

A sci-fi simulation experience crossing the event horizon, the edge of gravity and the limits of human perception. Mankind has always longed to discover and explore new places. What drives us? Curiosity, advancement, adventure, enlarging living space, disseminating human DNA or just ordinary human pride? The colonization of new planets is inevitable. But should the universe be colonized by people? A non-traditional production by the VOSTO5 Theatre inspired by Archa, evolution and Czechoslovak sci-fi comic magazine ABC. The performance is for adults and children ages 8 and up.
