The Institute of Global Loneliness

blitz theatre group, 2017
Ideas about time were different up here. The smallest unit of time was a month, and a single month was almost no time at all.

Following Thomas Mann’s novel The Magic Mountain: a small community is isolated from the rest of the world, in a certain kind of quarantine, where they have to follow specific schedules and rules. A community that wonders why it has been infected by the virus of Loneliness and has to find ways to get healed from it.
