Die Bibel (in der Übersetzung  von Novoflot)

The Bible (in translation of Novoflot)

2017

500 years after Luther nailed his 95 theses to the portal of a chapel in Wittenberg NOVOFLOT glance over the preliminary result of five centuries of reformation and stop beating around the bush: while the reformative spirit occasionally still helps to overcome certain frailties of mind, it also helps to facilitate a perpetual lack of spiritual humour, phantasy, a gnawing moral-monotony and a feeling of inconsolable distance between man and god.

This is where NOVOFLOT enter the scene with the utopia of a counter-reformation in the spirit of Fernando Pessoa and providing music-theatrical spaces in the three parts of their project The Bible (in Novoflot's translation), launched at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, in which the arrival of a new plurality of gods, happily united with humanity, was credibly proclaimed.
