“Människans Tidsålder” premiered at 3:e Våningen in Gothenburg 4th of October 2017. The piece was choreographed and performed by Linus Sundqvist and Aiina Larsson. It was also a part of “Måndans Extended”, 3:e Våningen’s campaign for new Swedish choreography.

about the piece

The year is 2017 and Anthropocene – the age of mankind – is at the point of culmination. Despite our exponential growth and technological advancement we’re cack-handed in a narrative about our own destruction.“The age of mankind” is the alarm about ecological catastrophes to come. With the climatological condition of the planet Neptune as an anticipation about our own planetary future.

Once again the ancient wrath of gods awakens. Thus when the spring of life does wither, Neptune – the god of oceans, from his eternal sleep arouses.
