Philosopher Bruno Latour and theatre maker Frédérique Aït-Touati reflect on the relationship between human beings and their environment. Can we change our perception of the earth? No longer from a great distance, like a blue marble flying through space… But from the inside out, from the wafer-thin outer layer of the globe on which all life, human activity and resources are concentrated?

Five figures form a portrait of humanity in the insane twentieth century, awaiting the inevitable catastrophe. Wars, simmering conflicts, terrorism, ecological disasters… an ever-greater number of possible endings present themselves. Despite the shock, they continue to talk, perform, and play music.

In the performance Crazy But True, children between the ages of eight and eleven form a panel of experts. A text is whispered to them via headsets. They repeat what they hear, and thus present a growing list of extraordinary facts.
