The Last Minutes Before Mars is a mixed-reality immersive 360° video and live performance that dangles the audience above a vat of bubbling ethical considerations, asking them to take a position. Any position.


The Last Minutes Before Mars was originally coproduced with ZONA K and Triennale Milano Teatro, with the World Premiere taking place at Schauspielhaus Bochum on September 2020, created in collaboration with Mit Ohne Alles, a German youth group founded by Mammalian Diving Reflex in 2012 while in residence at the Ruhrtrienalle Festival. Mammalian Diving Reflex is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
