The action takes place somewhere in Europe. A female taxi driver is zigzagging her way through traffic, when she discovers two illegal passengers; a politician obsessed with surveillance cameras and an artist who likes staging genocides. Has the world become a grotesque Tivoli? Is the taxi headed for the abyss of democracy? In “History of the Future” Christian Lollike questions the contemporary state of democracy and the position of the individual in it. The play was initiated by The Goethe Institute’s theatre project “After the Fall”” – a celebration of the 2o-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. The play opened at The Royal Danish Theatre on September 11, 2009.
