COSMOS+ is a performance created with the aim of arousing enthusiasm and curiosity about the beauty and many mysteries of the universe.
COSMOS+ brings us closer to the stars, the planets, the sun, comets and asteroids and such phenomena as supernova, white dwarfs, red giants, black holes, dark matter and dark energy, background radiation and the Big Bang.
COSMOS+ is a composition of live performance with text, music, projections and light.
We follow the boy Tom7, who carries out his space experiments. He knows everything about the universe! He meets the astronomer, the mathematician, two physicists, two philosophers and two operators. They are experts who can provide us with facts about the phenomena in the universe – while the moon-girl comes and goes.
The farther out into space we look, the farther back we are in time. We meet cosmic phenomena that starts with the solar system and ends with the Big Bang, followed by quantum fluctuations – like thousands of soap bubbles.
Short, humorous stories from daily life on the planet Earth mix with almost incomprehensible facts about the universe. Here is where we live, and it is from here that we look up into the sky and are amazed. We are a part of the drama that takes place far, far away but that influences us each and every day.
Magnificent images fill the stage. Projections of immediate beauty and violent force are accompanied by rhythmic electro-music. Music and images, drawings and narratives show the fantastic history of the universe, where everything is interconnected.
Duration: 75 min. no intermission
