STAY is a participatory performance and intervention that thematises ‘climate migration’. Current prognoses predict that by 2050, at least 200 million people, if not many more, will be displaced by climate change. They will be forced to flee their homes due to climate catastrophes such as drought, flooding, severe storms, bushfires, desalination and rising sea levels – unless we stop burning fossil fuels.
As a form of ‘immunisation’ against this avoidable future scenario, STAY transforms the Werkstattbühne of the Bonner Theater into a form of waiting room.
Following this, the theatre hosts a discussion forum on the subject of climate refugees with a number of experts. The discussion is organised by the Commissioner for Art from the German Environmental Agency, Fotini Mavromati. During the podium discussion, representatives from the fields of politics, science and civil society discuss the causes and repercussions of climate-induced migration, as well as possible solutions.
A final micro-theatre event occurs before exit.
