It’s not the earth’s fault.

Biologist Fritzi has inherited a farm and is researching the food of the future. Her start-up designs genetically modified grain. But the land challenges her. The farm seems to be occupied by her neighbor Johanna and figures emerge from her head claiming to be the universe, the soil or Uncle Georg.

The same Ulrike does not want to take over the farm in 1973, nor does her brother. Her parents had invested, bought machines, modernized. But now there is an oil crisis and everything they had learned to do and plan is shaky. Father Hermann slaughters the last sow, and Ulrike is haunted by an even deeper buried past: The largest volcanic eruption in our records, Tambora in Indonesia, blows a gigantic cloud of ash across the globe in 1815, blocking out the sun. The two missing summers cause one of the greatest famines in Europe in the 19th century and where the new stable is now to be built, there was the wooden hut of their ancestors…

Director Christoph Frick and author Lothar Kittstein have already worked intensively on the climate crisis and scenarios for sustainable coexistence in artistic and activist terms. In combination with choreography and video, the result is a haunting and visually powerful piece about our dependence on nature.

A play commissioned by the Münchner Kammerspiele.
