Jean Raspail's work from 1973 and his adaptation of 1985 are negative utopias about the clash of cultures, whose significance the Schauspiel Frankfurt does not want to leave to the right-wing radical discourse. The French apocalyptic novel, in which a million refugees from Asia set off for Europe, perfectly captures the conflict of our society. On the one hand, it invokes a universalism of migration and on the other wrestles with its own identity. Jean Raspail tells of a collective sense of anxiety in the Western world, of the subconscious knowledge that one's own wealth is at the expense of others and the idea that our established security can not be sustained without serious conflicts. His nihilistic view leaves us with the question of whether humanity is not a chimera. The world premier is a co-production between the Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen and the Schauspiel Frankfurt.
