Science of Signs II: Oráculo
World premiere: January 26th, 2018 in the frame of ID festival, Berlin.
Translating sacred scriptures into contemporary stage directions, The progressive wave continue with the development of their innovative performative language and forming unique dramaturgical modules to examine overlaps between ancient teachings.
Making use of written and signed languages, this performative hybrid is a journey into the mysterious, traveling between the now, the ancient and the futuristic.
Oráculo is the second chapter in The progressive wave’s performance trilogy Science of Signs. This theatric triptych is exploring the relations between science, performance, and philosophy.
