Germany: Year 2071 is a co-production with Impulse Theater Festival 2016 and Berliner Festspiele / Foreign Affairs.

Nature Theater of Oklahoma invites the audience to join in the making of a retro-science fiction film, a 21st century Alphaville shot over the course of several days set against the backdrop of Cologne’s architecture and the ever-construction-site Berlin. The audience is invited to participate in enacting and envisioning this site-specific performance for the camera, joining the film/performance’s heroes Dorothy and Joseph on a secret mission to Germany. It is a country on the verge of collapse, where extra-terrestrials who look exactly like humans but taste like pork are being imported from other planets for their delicious meat, and newborns are sent off to child-rearing camps in the southern German colonies of Greece. But even such drastic measures fail to revitalize the economy—because all the profits end up in the hands of one clever business man, Baron Bruno. Dorothy and Joseph suspect that he is secretly terrorizing the citizens with the monstrous Swamp Creature, which might just be a fantastically designed carnival float...

Nature Theater of Oklahoma are New York City-based artists Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska. Their internationally acclaimed works have been presented by several festivals and theatres such as Berliner Festspiele, Burgtheater Wien and Festival d’Avignon.
