Don't Fear Change

Human beings entertain themselves with nonsense and death things. There is no planet B, but what if planet A stands for Adaption - and when did nature actually ask to be saved by us and not from us?

Circling around the notion that the apocalypse is a boring dystopia - no grandiose battlefield but just a little less of everything fun in a slow collapse of biodiversity and capitalism - BRAVO TOGA is creating the performance Don’t Fear Change. A choreographic and dramatic research about escaping one's domesticated lifestyle and re-connecting with one's inner wildlife.

Exploring the paradox of being a human body with a post-animal mind, BRAVO TOGA wonders how humanity is coping with our current cliff hanger-moment in time. By cross-fertilizing interimistic scoutpractices with actual cognitive group therapy, Don’t Fear Change questions the prospects of our dead-end future like a rockband in i a midlife crisis who finally understands their past toxicity and ask ourselves: is this the best version of us?
