About the performance
We have used some motives and fragments from the books Less is More: How Degrowth Will Save the World by Jason Hickel, How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Andreas Malm, Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson and The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells.
The theme of climate change affects us all, but is especially important for the young who will inherit the planet and are keenly aware that we need to act now if we are to preserve the Earth life as we know it. Or something like that. The data on declining biodiversity, growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, contamination with plastic and other waste, and, on the other hand, plans of the fossil fuel producers are simply terrifying. Inextricably intertwined with all of these are class issues and (neoliberal) capitalism. The artistic team will contemplate the idea of degrowth, the feeling of anger that comes over almost anyone that delves into environmental issues, and whether it is justifiable to resort to violence in order to put an end to this devastating spiral. They will also give thought to hope; one that is focused on a clear and still attainable goal and is not grounded in fairy-tales.
Fever is a perfected production performed with devotion /…/ and can be, in what it aims to achieve, unreservedly called the most important event of the year. Time is, in fact, running out.
(Gregor Butala, Dnevnik, 14 October 2021)
The production is 1 hour and 45 minutes long and has no interval.
