COSMOS+ is a Big Bang performance created with the aim of arousing enthusiasm and curiosity about the wonders of the Universe, suitable for all audiences from 6 to 99 years old.
COSMOS+ physically brings the audience closer to the stars, the planets, the sun, comets and asteroids and such phenomena as supernova, white dwarfs, red giants, black holes, dark matter and dark energy, background radiation and the Big Bang.
During the performance, we follow Tom7, a young boy who carries out his space experiments. Over the course of the show, he meets an astronomer, a mathematician, two physicists, two philosophers and two operators, all experts who can provide real facts about the universe. Short, humorous stories told from daily life on planet Earth mix with almost incomprehensible facts about the universe. Earth is where we live, and it is from here that we look up into the sky and be amazed. We are a part of that drama that takes place far, far away and influences our every day life...
A live performance with music and images, drawings and narratives, COSMOS+ combines projections of immediate beauty and violent force with rhythmic electro-music created and performed live by two young composers.
