We are living in a global crisis. But how should we deal with it? Philosopher Peter Sloterdijk warns us of “the ghost of religion” and tells us to change our lives ourselves without waiting for God’s help. Slavoj Žižek, on the other hand, compares our thinking and actions now at the end of time to a grieving process in which we have to work through several stages, from rejection and anger before finding acceptance. The music theatre work ‘Earth Diver’ directed by Wouter Van Looy, and including a video piece by Wim Catrysse, seeks to immerse itself in this mood, combining philosophical ideas through music, literature and images.
