World Without Us

Date: 26 Dec 2017

Belgium’s acclaimed theatre innovators Ontroerend Goed return to Sydney to ponder a world without us.

What would our absence look like, sound like? What would be left unsaid, unmade? What would take our place and how long would it take for all traces of our humanity to be erased?

Performed by Valentijn Dhaenens and Karoline De Bleser, World Without Us asks its audience to consider the unthinkable, the unimaginable: “There would be no words for it, no words anymore …. no word for nothing.”

The conclusion of an epic trilogy that began with A History of Everything (2012) and 2015’s Are we not drawn onward to new erA, World Without Us is an unnerving and poignant dramatic experiment from a truly daring theatre company whose previous visits to Sydney (in 2014 with Fight Night and in 2009 with Once And For All We’re Gonna Tell You Who We Are So Shut Up and Listen) have been among the talking points of the year.

A Sydney Festival event.
