A performance based on the novel of the same name by Marius Goldhorn

How do we prepare for the great unknown, our future? Director Julia Skof asks this question in her adaptation of Marius Goldhorn's debut novel Park. In it, Arnold, prototype of Generation Y like Youtube, sets off for Athens. The journey becomes an odyssey through a reeling Europe. Between real, imagined and virtual spaces, he navigates his way past news feeds with catastrophe reports that outdo each other and ends up in the middle of a demonstration in which he is not meant to participate.
In the Neumarkt's stage adaptation, ensemble member Yan Balistoy stands alone in the spotlight - one of 7.79 billion supporting actors. He looks at his smartphone. It's 7:35 p.m. Time to prepare for the impending end. Image after image creates a trance-like maelstrom, a series of images of a crisis-ridden present in which everything seems to be at stake again and again.
