On the search for the coming society: during each performance, a different performer sets out on the search for new and old myths for a future Germany. Each one brings together remembered places, symbols and rituals together into a unique, open archive that can serve future generations as a foundation for identities and self-images that can be created anew. The future of Germany, negotiated in the here-and-now!
