- Arctic Requiem -

This is the world…
This is the…
This is…

Ice Ice Baby is an absurd journey of two human-like polar bears, Fritz and Knut, traveling from the imprisonment of the zoo back to their ancestors’ lands in Svalbard. The ice cube is melting fast in a shopping cart and the desert is empty except for plastic bottles. As the journey progresses the circumstances become unreasonable and the two friends try to cling on to their last hope; friendship. Lingering between Arctic and post-apocalyptic worlds, the piece is an absurd performance about love, hope and an unreasonable attempt to get by in a world conquered by homo sapiens.
