Predictions

Series of monologues about visions of the future by young performers.

Synopsis:
Predictions is a series of 10 monologues depicting visions of the future spoken out as personal predictions by young performers. The layout is plain: speech, nothing more. Each monologue unfolds as an image described in relation to the narrator’s experience of the situation depicted. The monologues combine fiction with personal narrations and speculations of the impact of climate change. They take in account how climate change will result, in addition to extreme natural phenomena, as new political challenges, renewal of food production or struggles in sharing resources in an ethical way.
