999: An Apocalyptic Dark Comedy

Produced and Presented by Chance of the Hunter

Donald Tenborogh has decided to give up nature documentaries and join a hibernation program to wake up in a better future. In his dreams, he meets his fears and desires: a polar bear dancing in a nightclub, an advertisement for the latest Galvanized Cylinder Bunker, and an unborn child who wants to live. 999 is an apocalyptic dark comedy from Chance of the Hunter, making their international debut.

The show is recommended for anyone above the age of sixteen who connects to the following topics: climate crises, climate anxiety, and environmental crises. The company considers these issues as some of the most urgent questions of global society. This is the main reason they started to work on their devised theatre performance and searching ways to present it abroad as well.
