Music: Catherine Kontz

Words: Roswitha Gerlitz

 

The Manna Threshold plays with the notion of time: eternity, infinitude, and, most essentially, its absence. Set in 2270, the post anthropocentric era, where time is abolished and immortality for all humanity is enforced by law. Solar and lunar settings and seasonal variations are eroded. Movement and time are fully spatialised. Life is governed by a technosphere which provides for the maintenance of body and mind. Two beings in different stages of immortality negotiate their respective conditions. They converse in minimalist dialogue and clipped statements, discussing the nature of existence as they modify their physical condition.
