World Without Us

World Without Us—an exhilarating monologue—is the latest visionary work from Belgian theatre collective Ontroerend Goed. In it, humans have suddenly, vanished—freeing the planet from traditional rules and orders, and prompting eons of biological change. Neither a political statement nor a parable meant to petrify us, World Without Us instead muses on a profound ode to human consciousness.
