The future is now, but how did we get here? Cosmic communauts are time-travellers searching for all our yesterday’s tomorrows. This lecture is a performance is a concert about the history of the future in the 20th century. Today we know: The arm’s race was a space race, the cold war an international cover-up to colonize outer-space and our planet finally turned into a global free-trade-zone to get fit for cosmic commerce. This future-drama is an anachronistic celebration of hopes passed and futures failed in sounds’n’words: Visit the red planet with the bolshevist Bogdanov, step in the World Commune’s interplanetary vessels with Vladimir Mayakovsky or have a chat with H.G. Wells and Lenin, the first alien in the Kremlin: “Communist cosmonauts got contact!” Today, just like yesterday, the focus is on the figure of the alien which is threatening the old order as secret agent, unregistered migrant or a virus from outer space. Is our present haunted by ghosts of the past or visited by spirits of the future? By ancient astronauts or mutant men from another millenium? We’re all cosmic communauts, so get ready for a strange encounter of the third kind in the fourth dimension: Time is the place to be, history’s a mystery, back to the future.
