The Present saves the world: Fountain of Joy

TEARS, TRAINING & TRIUMPH: MUSICAL PERFORMATIVE REACTIONS ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS

There will be no box office on site, so please purchase your tickets online in advance (depending on availability also possible on the day of the event)!
Please also note the special admission situation (see directions) and arrive on time.

Part three of the trilogy THE PRESENT saves the world – FOUNTAIN OF JOY celebrates the triumph of human imagination: utopia begins now, tears and training were successful and the salvation of the world …

THE PRESENT welcomes you to Spreepark Berlin, THE former (East) Berlin place of fun, between post-reunification megalomania and completely new urban design. THE PRESENT invites you to celebrate a party of the future and – for nature conservation reasons – not to laugh too loud.

Because in this place in the middle of Plänterwald you will see not only the pale starry sky and the airy installations made of loofah sponges that you can take home, but, if you are very lucky, also the kestrels in their eyrie, the nightingales among the trees and the bats over their heads.

And if you are very quiet, then together with THE PRESENT you can hear how a bond between nature and culture could sound.

The three ladies and two gentlemen of the solo vocal ensemble THE PRESENT have taken on a lot: In three parts from April to July, they invite you to save the world for a change – in places that are inextricably linked to Berlin’s transformation and a new understanding of nature and the city. Working collectively with director and writer Therese Schmidt and set designer Hsuan Huang, they have created three musical evenings that confront the climate crisis with complete hubris and a twinkle in their eyes – whether those eyes are laughing or crying, only you can decide.
