In the performance "klimaton - Listening to the Disappearing Landscape", the Arctic landscape appears as an autonomous voice that can be addressed and played through the sound object "klimaton ARCTIC≈2020". The authors Heike Geißler and Sivan Ben Yishai have created intense texts that highlight the human inability to comprehend the world as a whole and allow visitors to immerse themselves deeply in the subject matter. The composers Daniel Dominguez Teruel and Thies Mynther explore this strange encounter between landscape and people musically and perform together with the actress Mateja Meded and the artist duo Softić. The result is a unique symbiosis of sound, words and visual art that also tells the story of climate change and the pressing ecological challenges of our time as a crisis of culture.
