TECHNO THEATRE/URAN PARTY/LIGHTINSTALLATION
“A science with which one can comprehend what one cannot comprehend in the world. But unfortunately one can comprehend ever less in the world …” Hisashi Inoue

Altitude 580 metres: August 1945: the second atom bomb in the history of mankind is detonated: Little Boy. 80 thousand people die immediately. April 1986: Chernobyl. Between July 1945 and May 2009: 2052 atom bomb tests. March 2011: Fukushima. January 2012: Iran produces highly enriched uranium. Mankind has been using nuclear energy peacefully for only 60 years. The half-life of uranium-235: 703.8 million years. Worldwide there are 432 reactors in operation, and 62 are currently under construction. There is still no permanent storage facility for highly radioactive waste. All clubs in Germany consume annually some 750 million kWh.

The play “Little Boy - Big Taifoon” by the Japanese dramatist Hisashi Inoue was being staged using a video installation, and set spatially and temporally in relation to the work of a DJ. Thematically linked under the title of STROM (CURRENT), all three pieces examine the peaceful (nuclear energy) and military (nuclear bomb) application of nuclear fission.
