aerocircus – eine circensische karnevaleske mit planwagen entgegen aller linearitäten brings the debate surrounding the climate crisis to an inclusive theater production: Against the backdrop of a spatial concept designed by Tomás Saraceno, the RambaZamba Theater players gradually grow to accept a ruined planetary habitat.

A planet with a dead ecological system in a world in which all theatres have been abandoned: Only a flying circus remains to preserve the bold dreams of long-gone humans in its carnivalesque archive. This “aerocircus” conjures up the image of beings without fixed boundaries or limits, which need to be constantly investigated and explored anew. In a double-floored circus ring, a tomorrow that is no longer populated by humans is envisioned with the goal of being able to somehow influence the lost future. As time goes by, the circus artists – acrobats and tightrope walkers, clowns and mimes – begin to view our overheated planet as an artistic challenge and gradually grow to accept the ruined planetary habitat. As portrayed by the actors from the RambaZamba Theater, the circus artists perform their acrobatic feats inside a series of installations created by the internationally renowned visual artist Tomás Saraceno. His spatial designs lend evidence and visibility in a striking manner to the web of life that binds both the human and non-human inhabitants of our planet.

Austrian author Thomas Köck has been addressing ecological issues in his work for many years now. aerocircus marks the second collaboration between Thomas Köck, Jacob Höhne, who is the Artistic Director of the RambaZamba Theater and the director of aerocircus, and the theater concept creator (dramaturg) Frank Raddatz. The three previously worked together on the world flames like a discokugel (styx spricht) (The World Flames Like a Disco Ball [Styx Speaks]). The RambaZamba players are also joined here by the well-known stage actress Ilse Ritter, three students from the Puppetry program at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts (Hannah Elischer, Moritz Ilmer, and Leah Wewoda), and acrobat Marie Juana Jimenez.
