Technological advancements ruin humanity
Karmas, thus, always come before Judgement Day 

The second instalment of the tripartite A Concise History of Future, Posthuman Condition investigates our new era of technological warfare, when Artificial Intelligence (AI) dominates everything. What will happen to human beings and their survival? This work was invited to the “Teaser Pitching Stückemarkt” at Germany’s Theater Dortmund and the German-language# Posthuman Condition received its world premiere at the Schauspiel Frankfurt in 2021.

Frank is an ordinary man living in a developed country. By pure coincidence, he became a remote pilot, sitting in the comfort of his home and using his gaming skills to launch airstrikes in other countries. When his son Another is born, the baby doesn’t have a buttock! His wife Jane recounts a legend from the East about redemption… Frank resolves to visit the places he has destroyed and the people he’s wounded.

A cyber-buttock has been appended to Another to save his life, yet there are side effects: the baby grows ten times faster than any normal boy, he is also bestowed with paranormal powers. Is Another a harbinger for future generations or an exemplar of the epic failure of technology?

House Author at the Nationaltheater Mannheim, Yan Pat-to returns to his hometown with this production.
