Fortune of Planet B

The ancient Romans already had the figure of the soothsayers and the foretellers of the future - the augurs. Equipped with their crosier, they observed the events of nature. Silke Grabinger - this time equipped with VR goggles, controller and fortune features - deals with the questions oftoday‘s society in the performative installation Fortune of Planet B, symbolises the epitome of the oracle, who predicts fateful future scenarios and appears as a future-telling figure. Is society on its way to a utopia or dystopia? What ethical questions accompany progress? And will we as a society overcome these difficulties in a humane way? The augur‘s smile of the knowing and initiated performer and choreographer will perhaps know the answers.
