Antagon theater: Ginkgo, a 360° show

The Ginkgo tree was a charred stump which sprouted again and breathed life after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. This tree lends its name to antagon's new production. On the futuristic stage, a group of human beings fight for survival and discover a force that affirms the power of life - the seed of hope and the source of flowering and growth.
Ginkgo“ is a fast-paced, outdoor production, with room for poetic and sensible moments, but also with fire, hanging performances, live music and action-theatre that creates large images.

German:
Eine 360° Platzbespielung.
Der Ginkgo-Baum war nach dem Atombombenabwurf in Hiroshima ein verkohlter Stumpf, der aufbrach und wieder zum Leben erwachte. Dieser Baum gibt der neuen antagon Produktion ihren Namen. Im futuristischen Bühnenbild kämpft eine Gruppe menschlicher Wesen ums Überleben und findet die lebensbejahende Kraft, den Keim der Hoffnung und die Quelle zum Wachsen und Blühen. Ginkgo - eine rasante Outdoor-Performance mit poetischen und sensiblen Momenten, Feuer, hängenden Inszenierungen, Live-Musik und Aktionstheater, das große Bilder schafft.
