What if nature strikes back?

Between floating ice and mountain peaks, this piece with elemental force raises the question of what we hold on to while the world tilts. Surreal, visually powerful, imaginative and absurdly funny, one of the most pressing phenomena of our time is dealt with.

A production by Theater Titanick in cooperation with the dance theater company bodytalk.

The production

KIPPPUNKT is an allegory of the climate crisis. Not didactic, but amazing. Not abstract, but so absurdly tangible that everyone can identify with it.

The production finds its own language for a phenomenon that is much discussed but still not fully understood. With the astonishing theatre machinery of Titanick and the astute body art of bodytalk, the audience is drawn into a world where everything is on the brink.

Once again dance with depth meets large-scale image theatre. This time they devote themselves to a question of elemental urgency with their own narrative power: What if nature strikes back?
