Are we not drawn onward to new erA
Theater | Music

US Premiere

Presented by BAM in association with The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival

Ontroerend Goed
Directed by Alexander Devriendt

 

You can’t put toothpaste back in the tube. You can’t remake a shattered vase. Or undo the damage that humans have inflicted on the earth. But what if you could—in just one night?

Belgian theater collective Ontroerend Goed traffic in the unpredictable. Like its title, Are we not drawn onward to new erA unfolds as a palindrome. Careening between a riot of destruction and otherworldly healing, this striking theatrical masterwork comes to BAM and Under the Radar for its US premiere, offering an impossible chance to turn back the clock.
