A reverse Big Bang. The Earth has been engulfed by plastic/heat/a nuclear disaster/a meteorite .… (fill in the dots). People have gone into hiding in the Earth’s inner core. A parallel universe. Something to do with quantum mechanics. The first human being comes back up to the surface through an intergalactic space tunnel. OUCH.

Is this livable? Can friendships develop there? Is it possible to feel at home in a place you don’t come from? Where the others aren’t like you? Where you don’t understand the world and it doesn’t understand you?

 

The Last Unicorn is an evocative and associative show about a unicorn, a dinosaur and an astronaut going through an identity crisis.

Lola Bogaert – one of today’s most talented young creators – has opted for a motley cast to make a show about the fundamental feeling of not belonging and the melancholy, sadness and most of all funny situations that come with it.
