NIBIRU

The project is a creative process that is based on presumptions and visions and that draws conclusions about the future of mankind and the Earth, starting from the tale about Nibiru, the tenth planet of the solar system, which when crashing into Earth will end the forms of life as we know them now. The performance explores what else could happen on Earth after this. The artists Tamara Zsófia Vadas, Ábris Gryllus and Márton Emil Tóth are working with children aged 9-15 on a project that will be presented by children.
