Like the title of the show, the latest production by Ontroerend Goed is a palindrome, i.e. it can be read forwards and backwards the same way. And indeed while some people believe that humanity is moving forwards, others think the opposite. Some say that the world is slowly decaying, others call them pessimists. Regardless of who is right and who is wrong, it is clear that in our quest for progress, we have dramatically changed the world that we live in. Are our actions irreversible or can we do something about them? “Are we not drawn onward to new erA” provides a visual metaphor for this decisive moment in our future history. It portrays the process that people go through en route to ruin or redemption. The show won the Fringe First Award at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was nominated for the Total Theatre Award.

“Life must be lived forwards, but it can only be understood backwards”
Sören Kierkegaard
