Dronte etc. - Stories of extinction
Open an imagery encyclopedia of various endangered or already extinct existences – not only animals or species, but also other beings, behaviors, thoughts and objects... And not simply extinct, but also forgotten.
To reveal the charm and darkness in the stories of the last of a kind; the sadness and freedom of one's voluntary extinction. A unusual cabaret with a rotating cast of KREPSKO colleagues, exploring the wonders of extinction.
